Meet Joyce

I believe our journey is ever changing and evolves as we become more aware and in sync with our inner spirit and soul.  I feel the times of greatest learning often takes place when we have strayed from our path or lost our way. I also feel it’s the place where our dreams and goals take flight ….      


When I reflect back on my professional career, I feel blessed that I have been able to accomplish what I originally set out to do.  As an Early Childhood Educator, for over 28 years, I have worked in various capacities within the non-profit, early years/children’s services sector. I have had the pleasure to work as a front-line teacher, resource teacher assisting young children with their individual needs, in developing and implementing new programs and projects, facilitating community planning and development and working in a management capacity. 


In later years, I used one of my gifts to branch into other areas I felt passionate about as a journalist and local columnist covering figure skating and as a writer specializing in human interest stories for a local women’s magazine.  My work with an international figure skating magazine provided me with the opportunity of a lifetime to travel to destinations such as Japan, Finland and France that I had only dreamed of previously.  I was a small part of the figure skating world when it was in its prime.  I cherish the people I met whose paths crossed mine and the memories I have that will always remain with me and close to my heart.  I was witness to some of the finest moments in the history of figure skating at the elite level.  It was a dream come true!


My professional career only represents a small part of who I truly am.  As a lifelong learner, I actively engage and pursue the development of ‘self’.  Through this process, I have gained a deeper awareness, understanding and appreciation of my strengths, gifts, joys, passions and limitations.  One of my hopes is to share my understanding with others as I continue to further my own personal growth, learning and the pursuit of higher aspirations.


I feel that my journey has led me through all of these experiences to the point at which I am at today.  I find it personally fulfilling and rewarding knowing that I am an agent and catalyst for positive change in others helping them to navigate the crossroads, hills and valleys on their life journey.


I look forward to walking alongside you as we travel this road together … working together to achieve your goals and dreams!  Let your dreams unfold ….
