My name is Rachel and I’m the person behind this website, which started out as a Teaching E-Portfolio project.
I’m an educator, leader, and parent seeking high vibration living. I’m on a journey, and I want to share it with you. I believe that we’re all on a learning journey; always in search of some kind of education. If we remember this for ourselves and respect this in each other, we begin to reciprocate the learning.
This is the lifework of high vibe people: to act from an inspired, honorable and compassionate place in a way that reminds, liberates, or “teaches” others to as well.
I believe that high vibe education is the key to positive change.
And, that education can come in many forms, from all situations and places. Be it formalized education or “School of Hard Knocks” — it all counts. I hold a business degree from Brock University, a Master of Arts in Leadership from Royal Roads University, and various yoga teacher certifications. I’ve learned some of life’s greatest lessons while traveling and living abroad (different cultures, different ways of thinking); from learning and working with all kinds of people.
I’m privileged to share this journey with students as a professor at Niagara College in the Niagara Region of Ontario. View my teaching e-portfolio, here.
high vibED leadership
I promote the evolution of human capital through leadership training, team facilitation, speaking engagements, yoga, and the arts. I’m privileged to work with high capacity leaders in various organizations. Learn more about this work, here.
high vibED parenting
As a child, I crafted plots and sketched a lot. One thing led to another and my sketch pad got lost in the stockpile of childhood dreams. Then, with the privilege of becoming a mother (and consuming copious amounts of children’s literature), I came home to my doodling and story-lining self. I’m now attempting to kindle the conversation around “conscious parenting” with other families through creative writing. See a sample of my children’s book series, here.
