Roberta’s decades-long career has been spent supporting the CDP profession, from among the first CDPs to get certification, to teaching thousands of hours of courses & programs, to giving countless presentations to career professionals in BC, across Canada, and around the world, and to writing multiple research papers, textbooks and training guides to improve the field of career development. She has made so much contribution to knowledge development in the field through her relentless work.
Last year, as a response to COVID, Roberta fast tracked a co-authored publication “Career Recovery: Creating Hopeful Careers in Difficult Time”, and worked diligently with many organizations, institutions and associations to pivot quickly to e-learning.
She collaborated with the Union Gospel Mission to support the staff in deepening their understanding of resiliency and incorporating hope and self-care strategies within a personal “resilience plan”.
Roberta also combined her educational and scholastic work with an entrepreneurial spirit. She founded Life Strategies in 1993 to provide career coaching, counselling and consulting services to clients. Life Strategies has since become an award-winning organization, highly respected in the career development community.
