Shawnee is a two-time Olympian as a former Assistant Coach for Canada Basketball and is one of the most highly certified coaches in Canada and online.
She has 27 years of elite coaching and leadership experience including the Olympic Games, World Championships, FIBA Americas, and World University Games.
Athletes have a big load to carry. Shawnee helps them make sense of what's going on in their head, cut through the noise, and unleash their inner tiger. She increases their emotional
intelligence, to help them show up with courage and confidence on the biggest day, the biggest stage of their life. And because it takes a village, Shawnee also works with their parents.
Shawnee is a Chartered Professional Coach (ChPC) with the Coaching Association of Canada, and she holds a Master’s Degree in Coaching Studies. In addition, she is a Master Coach Developer and Master Learning Facilitator for the National Coaching Certification Program, where she trains and mentors both advanced and novice coaches from all sports.
Since winning matters not only in sports but also in life, Shawnee works with leaders, managers, teachers, employees, students, and young adults to help them ignite the leader within. Her 1:1 Leadership Coaching equips people with a toolkit to manage the storms that inevitably arise during the pursuit of goals and dreams.
