"I was sure I didn’t need a coach; I could see that I was achieving brilliantly on my own, why would I need a coach? But fortunately for me the chance for coaching with Teresa came up and she is amazing. She helped me find ways to make my own life easier, clearer and more fun. With Teresa’s guidance I was able to focus on my own life and discover patterns of thinking that I didn’t even recognize were holding me back. Teresa is like light on a dark night; she helps make the path of our own life visible."
— Hendrika Ono, Artist, Librarian and Nouveau Bon Vivant

In addition to loving her work, Teresa loves to spend time with her husband and four young adult children. While this vintage drawing from 2008 shows her as one of the taller members of the family, she is now the second shortest. She lives in the north area of the GTA. For years she used her certification as a group fitness instructor to host classes from her in-home fitness studio. Since March 2020, she now offers classes online and her attendance has tripled. She is also thrilled to have the pleasure of serving as a Wedding Officiant … who wouldn’t want to spend time with people on one of the happiest days of their lives?
