I spent 31 years in the Public Service of Canada, 20 of those as a Director General or Director, including at Transport Canada, Privy Council Office, Treasury Board Secretariat, Canadian Heritage, and the Canadian Northern Economic Development Agency. The most gratifying part of my work was supporting others to

- connect with their strengths and potential,
- enhance their key competencies, and
- better align their careers and lives with their passions and priorities.

Since retiring in January 2023, I started LaFortune Coaching Services to continue providing these change management, leadership, and executive coaching services. I am a BCC-CCE Board Certified Coach, and ILCT Certified Resilience Coach, and an ILCT Certified Executive and Business Coaching Specialist, with a focus on leadership and executive coaching, resilience, and managing change.

I would be happy to work with you and your staff to enhance your skillsets, improve communication, navigate change, and create the outcomes that you seek in both your work and your life.


With my experience and knowledge, I can provide solution-focused seminars and individual coaching sessions packed with simple and practical tools, tips, and strategies to create the outcomes that you and your organization seek, including:


  • building a resilient and sustainable workplace,

  • supporting managers and teams to reduce stress and prevent burnout,
