My teaching includes higher and secondary education, as well as private online courses.


My teaching background of over 20 years has predominantly been in higher education. Both in the classroom and through distance learning online, I have taught at institutions including University of British Columbia (Canada), Waterloo University (Canada), Concordia University (Canada), Portland Community College (U.S.), and California State University (U.S.). As a professor, I have taught subjects such as writing and literary studies, sustainability education, energy literacy, digital media literacy, and food literacy (see my university profile for current courses). I have also taught English and Social Studies at an alternative high school for disadvantaged youth, High School Diploma in an adult education program for marginalized populations, and English as a Second Language (ESL) at an international school.

Online Courses

In addition to working with people on Narrative and Writing Coaching, I host workshops and teach online courses about rewriting our individual and collective stories in our careers and relationships (among other areas) using emotional forms of intelligence, such as intuition and creativity.

In 2020-21, there will be some courses available. Here’s the first in a series of courses:

  • Embracing Fear and Rewriting the Script (5 week online course)
