Jones and has been on the Board of ICF Atlantic since the chapter began in 2011 and for the last year has been the Vice President. She took her coach training at Adler International Learning in Toronto in 2005, earned her ACC (Associate Certified Coach) credentials in 2007 and her PCC (Professional Certified Coach) in 2013. She has a full-time coaching practice, and is also a Senior Consultant with Knightsbridge Robertson Surrette. Prior to launching her coaching practice, Wendy was the Manager of Communications for the CBC for 12 years.

“I am thrilled to step into the President’s role and to represent our vibrant community of professional coaches across Atlantic Canada. There’s a big increase in requests for coaching, both from organizations and individuals over the past few years and the demand is growing. More and more people are hiring a coach to help them be more successful with whatever work or life challenges they may be encountering. We have over 70 Atlantic Chapter members, all of whom have taken or are currently enrolled in ICF accredited coach training programs. The ICF has a rigorous certification process with over 15,000 credentialed coaches and 70 chapters world-wide.”
