Her deep-seated commitment to others' success and belief in collaborative achievements stems from her experience supporting clients in the non-profit and public sectors through consulting, advising, engagement, and policy development.

Gerrit van der Leer // Director (retired) - Mental Health & Substance Use // BC Ministry of Health

As an Executive Coach, I know that Alisa is there to support me with the challenges, issues, and growth I am faced with. She coaches me, not the problem or issue I am having. She provides me with a safe place to be vulnerable and explore the situations I am faced with. Alisa is an excellent thinking partner that I highly recommend to everyone.

Lana Bavle // Founder // LTB Leadership Services

We retained Alisa's services to support the development and preparation of a complex application for funding that involved a partnered submission with a number of key elements still to be determined, compounded by a short time-line for completion. Despite these challenges Alisa was able to quickly focus our partnership on the work to be resolved and was able to weave together multiple inputs from various sources. Alisa's ability to both analyze and address the ongoing changes was remarkable and we  greatly benefited from her skilled approach. Despite the challenges we were able to deliver a clear and credible application within the stated time frame. Her roles encompassed that of facilitator, conflict resolver, researcher, analyzer, innovator and writer and we were very lucky she was able to support us so capably at a time of significant need.
