About Jan

My purpose is to help women enjoy meaningful work that fits their lifestyle.

I provide mentorship on midlife reinvention.

You’re a creative woman age 50+ and you want more time for travel and adventure. You’ve started asking: What’s next?

I believe you owe it to yourself and the world to Find Your Voice and Express it.

Exploring your Creativity while you Travel somewhere new can help you do this.


I'm Jan, a Midlife Reinvention Coach.

Have a look at my Free Webinar Reinvent Midlife Via Travel so you can see how I can help.


I would love to learn more about you and your travel dreams!


Create A Personalized Map

If you feel lost in the wilderness of midlife career change, I can help you create a Personalized Map to help you get from where you are to where you want to be - in terms of meaningful work that fits your lifestyle.

We’ll start where you are and look at the destination you have in mind. I like to use a Real Map - not just one that’s a metaphor for career transition.

Travel to a foreign destination can help you Reinvent Your Life in a fun and adventurous way. It’s also a great way to make friends around the world.


If you’d like a Guide to walk you through every step of the way, have a look at my complimentary YouTube video on Midlife Reinvention via Travel.

It may be just what you are looking for.


Reinvent your Life and Work through Travel

Travel is one of the best ways to jumpstart your creativity while allowing you to explore other cultures, new ideas and to zero in on flexible work options that best fit your lifestyle AND - it's a fun way to step outside your comfort zone and make friends around the world.

After 20+ years as a Career Counsellor, I discovered there was often a mismatch between the jobs available and the work women were interested in. With the new Gig Economy thriving and entrepreneurship on the rise, there’s no better time to design your own work path. Many Boomer women seek flexible work that allows them to travel.

I know it’s a challenge to do this alone. It’s better with support, a sounding board and accountability. It’s also more fun with a group of creative women around you.

More About Jan

When my government-funded Employment Services contract changed, I realized I could be of more benefit to clients outside of the system.

The problems clients told me they experienced on the job were:

  • Too much power and control exerted over them by managers.
  • The stress of office politics, hierarchy and bureaucracy.
  • Few opportunities for creativity and initiative.
  • Inflexible hours that couldn’t accommodate family needs.
  • Forced to take short vacations at times dictated to them.
  • Uncertainty about how long their job would last.

My background includes a MA in Leadership & Training and extensive counselor training. I am a qualified instructor of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and am certified in three areas: Life Skills Coach, Senior Advisor and Retirement Coach. I read a lot and am devoted to lifelong learning.

I live in a small cottage with my husband Tony on an Island surrounded by creative artists of all types. My Island home is known as The Isle of the Arts. It is on Canada’s West Coast. My love of music often has me out Morris dancing, singing and playing songs on my ukulele or traveling around in our RV.

P.S. I've lost too many friends to an early death. They died with their dreams still inside them.

I don't want to live with regret. If you feel the same, let's talk.
