Hi, I’m Lily!
Coaching for me is to provide space for exploration. Sometimes in life we just need someone to listen to us, to allow us to voice our thoughts and ideas out loud, and to encourage us to look beyond our own boundaries for other possibilities and answers to our questions.
I work with leaders, professionals and individuals, through mutual dialogue and powerful questions, to promote reflection and awareness, to support them gain clarities, overcome challenges, obtain new insights, and grow more love for themselves.
As a dedicated adult educator with 15 years’ experience in program management and curriculum development for both domestic and international clients, I continue to grow and serve as an inclusive and encouraging leader. As a life-long learner, I enjoy every learning opportunity life presents and I am ready to learn and grow with you as I accompany you on your learning journey.
As a coach, by leveraging my diverse experience in leadership, adult education, intercultural communication, as well as my learning in navigating through parenthood, I am committed to offer a trusting and caring space for you to explore with openness on matters that are important to you, whether for work, home, or anything in between.
I am an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) with the International Coach Federation (ICF). I am currently working as an internal coach at the University of British Columbia (UBC) and an associate coach with Rosentall Coaching, where I partner with individuals and groups to explore, discover, and design paths towards success.

Selected testimonials from my valued clients
Lily was a fantastic coach for me. She was very empowering, supportive, and encouraging as a coach. She helped me frame each session with goals and action items which allowed coaching to be a very powerful and impactful experience. She is also a great listener and always remembered the details I told her, which I appreciated. Through participating in coaching with Lily, I was able to make important career direction decisions and feel confident in these decisions.

I always look back at the moment I decided to start the coaching journey with Lily and felt so glad that I went for it. For the past year, I had the pleasure of having Lily as my coach. Lily had helped me explore my learning and professional development with sincerity, care and mindfulness. She always listens carefully, observes without bias, and asks important questions to dig into the very essence of what I was trying to accomplish. When I was worried or upset, Lily is genuine, concerned and makes me feel that I am not alone. Lily helped me make so much progress and I am very grateful for that. I will recommend Lily without any hesitation!
