Senior Vice President & General Manager
Kathleen has built long-term relationships with Calgary’s most progressive and compassionate industry leaders for over 15 years as the Senior Vice-President and General Manager for Calgary and Southern Alberta. Beyond her unparalleled social skills, she brings a feisty, competitive spirit, and a zest for trying new approaches.
Her original goal of teaching was thwarted when she moved from Vancouver to Toronto and was introduced to the world of career transition services. She thrived in an environment where she had such a substantial impact on her clients as they navigated the significant change in their lives. Her boundless energy, enthusiasm, and positive approach to life continue to make an impact on all those she meets.
Kathleen took on a dual coaching/account management position in her early days with Toombs Inc. This then progressed very naturally into a senior leadership role. Today, she is responsible for strategic leadership, business development, and the growth of the career management practice. As a high-value partner to a large number of companies in a variety of industries, she offers her wisdom, support, and direction to decision-makers in all things career-related. She dedicates high levels of energy and motivation for every project and client interaction.
Kathleen is the epitome of a ‘people first’ leader. She glides through the career transition landscape, always alert, engaged, and willing to serve where she can. She knows exactly when to lead, coach, and empower others to figure it out on their own. Her spirit permeates our work culture and is a pivotal part of our collective success.
Kathleen has a BA in Sociology from the University of Toronto, a Teaching Certificate from Simon Fraser University, and is a graduate of Coach U.
