Let me put your mind at ease for a moment, I am going to remove the stigma that haunts you when your team says “What? We don’t need a consultant!”.
All of my coaches have successfully built teams that started from this mindset because they have all, at one time, “been there and done that.” During our Discovery process, we build immediate relationships and take down those barriers, if any. This second step, in our 8-step ‘How to CEO’ program will unpack the secrets of your clinic that will shock and surprise you; I have no doubt!
I came to join Debbie at Advantage at a time in my life where I was searching for more. Over the years, I had experienced what it was like working for dental practices where many opportunities to truly serve our patients walked out the door everyday. AAI opened up the doors for me to work alongside managers and practice owners to reach patients in ways that I never imagined before.
My approach to coaching is much the same as I approach patient care; with my heart first. My satisfaction comes from watching your growth and development. Then from watching your patient’s reaction to the experience you have created for them in your practice. I pride myself on following our proven systems because I have seen the results: and they are nothing short of transformational.
I graduated from the Toronto College of Dental Hygiene in 2009 and became interested in Myofunctional Therapy after attending a continuing education course. I am now an active member of the I.A.O.M. and received my certification in 2018, being one of the first Certified Orofacial Myologists in Canada. I’ve continued my education into the study of the Buteyko breathing method. As I continued to study and understand the consequences of dysfunctional breathing, I then furthered my studies to become a Certified Buteyko Breathing Instructor in 2020. I love working with a wide variety of patients from children to adults.
I have worked with Debbie now for over 15 years! My dedication, resourcefulness and goal driven passion is the key to my hands on 1:1 coaching; I enjoy being your champion cheer leader for practice growth. After many years of working in different capacities of the dental practice, I can say with confidence your team is not fully trained unless you work with AAI.
Team building, conflict resolution and leadership management are my specialties and assets I bring to this dental coaching team. Before joining Advantage, I graduated with a degree in Human Resources and Marketing from MacEwan University. I wanted to work with a team who valued their people as more than just a dollar sign and strived for inclusion in everything they did. This was Advantage; and through coaching I can achieve this inclusion and teamwork for dental practices using our methods and tools.
I enjoy bringing out the best in your team! Creating balance, fun and structure in your workplace where everyone has an important job to do. Making work a safe and enjoyable space for everyone, is what we strive for in every business!
Coaching is the sixth step in my 8-step ‘How to CEO’ program and is, what I feel, truly sets us apart. With integrated coaching, your team will have the continuous, in-office support to implement the systems and tools provided in our Masterclasses. My coaches are fully trained in both administrative and clinical development and utilize an 8-step approach to hands-on learning. Your team will never be left to wonder “What to do next?”LET’S GET STARTED
