About me.
I know what it's like.

I have a unique combination of training and experience that allows me to relate to professionals' challenges and offer practical advice for navigating them. I have held high-pressure roles in areas including business development, credit underwriting, strategy, and adult learning. I have enjoyed and benefited from each of these opportunities but have also experienced the many challenges that can accompany them.

I established LORA Concepts Inc. to formalize what I have been doing for years: Helping others build confidence, improve their concentration, deepen their professional relationships, enhance their people management skills, manage stress, and bolster their well-being.

I bring LORA Concepts Inc. to life through a down-to-earth and genuine approach that is built on nearly two decades of experience in high-pressure corporate roles, master's level education, and  research that includes over 400 hours of yoga and meditation teacher training.

LORA Concepts Inc. is an extension of who I am and what I have been doing for so much of my life.

I have been there.

The intense workload.

The thrill of closing the deal.

The pressure of presentations. 

The struggle to focus on one thing at a time.

Balancing being a good people manager with meeting your own needs.

The stress of deadlines. 

The frustration of red tape and shifting priorities.

Having too much to do and no idea where to start.

The challenge of collaborating with myriad personalities.

Believing so much in yourself in one moment and doubting everything in the next.

Having a job you enjoy but being overwhelmed.

Having a job you do not enjoy and not knowing how to cope.

The paradox of being confident and capable yet fearing failure.

I can help navigate these situations.

About my clients.

I work with organizations who want to offer my services to their people - employees, clients, members, partners, boards of directors, or other stakeholders.  

The leaders in the organizations I work with see the toll that high work pressure and an increasingly busy world has on their people. 

They care about their people and want to help them navigate the impacts of these challenges by providing them with meaningful advice and helpful techniques... without sacrificing performance.

 

This is when they come to me.

My services are suitable for a range of industries, including financial services, other professional services, manufacturing, and education, and a variety of business types, including small businesses, medium-sized businesses, corporations, associations, and charitable organizations.

I help business owners and leaders in professional service-based industries who worry about the toll that high work pressure, stimulus overload, and distractions are having on their employees.

 

I empower professionals to build self-awareness, take control of their mindset, and act with intention.

 

By having their people attend my sessions, business owners and leaders ultimately see an improvement in employee effectiveness, engagement, and well-being.
