In the last ten years, Louise has worked at the executive board level within education and coaching organizations in the world.
As the Head of Global Operations, Louise has an expansive vision for Erickson’s Solution-Focused coaching endeavour. As Erickson continues its rapid expansion across North America and international markets, her expertise in education and global business will help build the transformative growth opportunities that Erickson offers clients around the world.

Louise is an international citizen who was raised in South Africa, lived in Zimbabwe as a child, frolicked in Switzerland as an adult, and now resides in beautiful Vancouver. She describes herself as a forever blossoming wife and mom, an adventurer at heart with a passion for Mother Nature’s wonders, a leadership-podcast junkie, an aspiring writer, a pragmatic visionary, and an insatiable student of all things ‘human-growth’. Those who know her love her loud belly-laughs and challenging questions; her intractable determination and her matriarchal qualities in keeping the herd thriving together. Louise says of her new career adventure as Erickson’s Head of Global Operations, “I can’t believe how lucky I am to be leading and learning within such an inspiring organization!”
