Hi – I’m Allison!


I am a Career Coach & HR Specialist but more importantly I am a Return to Work Expert. In addition to having returned to work from maternity leave myself 3 times (I totally get it!!) I have spent well over a decade creating return to work programs for some of the world’s most progressive companies. I have personally supported over 800 individuals in their return to work in sectors ranging from healthcare, education, manufacturing, engineering, non-profits and more (told you I get it).

This is for you if...

  • You who are currently on Maternity Leave
  • You are transitioning back to work
  • You have returned to work in the past year
  • You want support in your return to work
  • You are trying to figure this all out!

This course provided a great venue to share ideas and fears with other moms that were at a similar stage of their maternity leave.  It was a very welcoming group where all questions and concerns were encouraged and addressed in a very non-judgmental way. I have been referring back to some of the materials as my return to work date gets closer and closer. I would recommend for anyone returning back to work – first maternity leave or otherwise!
