Hi! I’m Linda
Shamanic Executive Life Coach • Speaker • Author • Founder of ZEST Your Life | ZEST Your Business • Creator of numerous courses and programs
Integrating my experience in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors with Ancient Wisdom Teachings to bring you a new recipe for life.
There’s so much sameness in the sea of executive coaching programs…certifications from large, male, guru-dominated machines, methodologies, and scripts that are followed with results that are mediocre at best.
My clients have discovered the value of my alchemical approach. It involves a seemingly magical process of transformation, creation, and combination. Melding my corporate, personal and life experience, creates an ideal environment for expansion and growth in all aspects.
It’s my mission to be of service in love and beauty. That’s why I enjoy teaching women, like you, to crystallize what you want in business and life so that you are in power, control, and leading your best life.
I am so passionate about working with you to get the right things done right because it breaks my heart to see smart, hard-working people flailing about trying to figure things out. With me, you get a personally committed partner to link arms with.
What you WANT to know about me…
My inner fire was always sparked by the mystical and magical. As a child, I was fascinated watching Aunt Josephine reading tea leaves (rumour has it that Aunty was fined for practicing witchcraft without a licence). I’m not a witch, so keep reading.
Many years were spent studying ancient wisdom teachings from a variety of gurus and teachers. A vision quest in 2003 led me to formal shamanic studies gathered from around the world including Egypt, Africa, Anglo, Christianity, Judaism, North America, Tibet, and more.
My #1 Int’l Best Seller ZEST Your Life–A Taste of Inner Wisdom is encoded with Ancient Wisdom Teachings.
For many years I hosted Wisdom Circles for Women. For example: “Womb Wisdom—Creating Resilience” takes women out of their head, into their heart and into their womb.
My deep desire is to share my Wisdom Teachings. And that brings me to gently integrate these Wisdom Teachings to bring ZEST to today’s Executive Woman. Nudging them to courageously tap into their innate feminine strengths. They find their dreams, live a better life and they get my personal attention.

What you NEED to know about me…
As you can see in my clients’ results, I’m not like other coaches.
And that’s because, I’ve been able to transform myself from a girl who lost her mom at 17, left home and went to work at 19 to the premier coach for women executives, bringing them the courage to work with their innate feminine strength.
Women who have achieved their career ambitions often ask me about how to understand the spiritual, mystical, magical!
You know, we often blame the unseen world for all the misery in our lives. Are you done struggling with the desire to know more?
My public and private sector experience are powerfully combined with my Ancient Wisdom Teachings to open and expand your life.
I’m meticulous when it comes to examining the details of any given situation… and I’m able to determine underlying causes that are unbeknownst to others. I can help change the outlooks and perspectives of those around me.
After working with me, you’ll understand the energy and vibrations that are with you. You’ll be in control of your emotions and your happiness.
Send me a message to be a part of this special training.
“I didn’t expect my life to be like this. I expected….”
Watch the video. Is this you?
I help women in leadership crystallize what they want in business and life so that they are in power and control. And then, I help them build a strategy to align, amplify and attract their ZESTY dreams.
Unlike many, we bring this to life through open heart connection, defining values, and the wisdom of ancient women’s teachings.
