Rebecca’s positive realism enables those she connects with to find possibility beyond their assumed limitations. Assured and inspiring, she is a visionary.
Anchored by resilience, sharp intelligence, and a depth of presence, Rebecca’s profound capacity for connection enables her to navigate challenging waters with clients. Working with Vancouver start-ups and rapid growth companies over the last two decades has built a reservoir of invaluable experience from which she draws. A young single mother, Rebecca began facilitation and team development for Provident Security. During her tenure, Provident Security blossomed from six employees to over a hundred and was voted top 10 places to work by BCBusiness for three years. Rebecca’s toolbelt has since been used to the benefit of Lululemon, Kit and Ace, Arc’teryx, Vancouver Film Studios, Lush, Rosemary Rock Salt Bagels, and more. In 2018 ViRTUS snatched her up as a perfect fit for our family.
Rebecca regularly volunteers with the Dr. Peter Centre and Dr. Peter Aids Foundation here in Vancouver. She also travels, supporting sustainable leadership programs by partnering with NGOs in the education and ecological conservation sectors within Africa.
In 2018 Rebecca was asked to run for City Council; she is currently fulfilling her first elected term. Motivated by a core value of community, Rebecca’s conviction and receptivity are now serving Vancouver at large.
Although her free time may be sparse, when she has it Rebecca can be found with those she loves most: her teenagers, Jackson and Holly, her wife Laura, and their beautiful dog Kingsley.
