Meet the ARO Team

Meet Pamela

I am the Chief Empowerment Officer and Co-Founder of ARO. As an alumni of the Tefler School of Business at the University of Ottawa, I have worked with the United Nations in Afghanistan, the World Bank in Washington D.C., and the Canadian Federal Government in various policy and managerial roles over the last twenty years. I am passionate about creating experiences where participants develop their relational intelligence skills, especially where creativity, fun and laughter collide!

Over the last ten years of leading events, consulting for organizations and work teams, and private coaching,  I have seen firsthand how these communication skills cultivate inclusion, welcome diversity, resolve conflicts quickly, and foster authentic self-expression.

I have over two decades’ worth of trainings, conferences, and spiritual/wisdom traditions under my belt and bring my unique core values of PLAY and EMPOWERMENT to every coaching or facilitation experience.

I’m also a member of the Certified Coaches Federation since my graduation from their program in 2012.

As the world becomes a more digital place, we cannot forget about human connection. In fact, we must prioritize it even more.
