Aly spent a decade in personal development programs as a participant, assistant and facilitator candidate, learning the nuances of effective communication, personality styles and the critical elements of powerful leadership. Along with 15 years of training and facilitating groups on hard and soft skills, Aly took her career to the next level through coaching with CTI (Coaches training Institute). She went on to become certified (one of the first 70 people globally) in Organizational Team and Relationship Systems Coaching. Aly is currently pursuing her Master Certified Coach designation through the International Coach Federation – the highest and most rigorous world wide standard.
Aly and her husband met in their early youth at a family reunion; now that’s a story (and no, they are NOT related)! After almost 20 years of marriage, living the adventure of being an Olympic family, and raising two of the best children ever, they currently reside in Vernon, BC. When her family is not running to children’s activities like snowboarding at Silver Star and lacrosse games around the valley, they enjoy snow/water skiing, soaking up the summer sun at the beach, shaking it at daily Zumba classes, and enjoying the results of an ambitious 2 year long home renovation.
She brings her experience being the wife of a 3-Time Olympian and silver medalist, Jeff Pain, and living on the inside of a high-performance team, to the boardroom. The corporate teams and families she works with communicate better, make faster and more aligned decisions while using constructive conflict to truly get to the best outcomes. Aly truly understands what it takes to reach your podium!
Her speaking audiences are Professional Organizations, Managers and Entrepreneurs wanting to grow their awareness of how teams work while getting more out of them, and leave with clear, simple tools to immediately implement in their organizations so they avoid the most common mistakes today. Aly works collaboratively with event organizers to be relevant and on-time as an enthusiastic Emcee, keynote and breakout session speaker to groups up to 500 people.
Her passion for family goes much father than her own. She works with Executive families and Family Enterprise through GenN Family Office to have conversations that matter for developing family counsels, legacy and philanthropy strategies and succession planning. Aly understands that when family and business mix there are more layers to pay attention to and each is entirely unique in the solutions they find.
