I coach students to discover their authentic voice and lead through their core values—mine are humour, wisdom and flexibility, in that order.
As the director of mindful performance at lululemon athletica, it is my responsiblity to set the overall vision, strategy, and direction of the mindful performance initiatives and experiences.
