About Me

~ Hi! I'm Alannah ~ 

I'm a multi-passionate-multi-hyphenate and The Simply is where it all comes together.

The Simply is the manifestation of my desire to help you (in the global sense) live the life your Soul is here to experience - and wants you to enjoy!

We all need each other's unique gifts and talents. When we can each truly shine, the whole world is improved.


Have you ever felt a small (or large) twinge - a knowing - that there is something more for you to uncover in your life?

The Simply is the manifestation of that for me.

I have worked to create a good life for myself, but I have always known that I was here for more - a larger purpose. The tools in The Simply are designed to help those who are also searching for more out of life. You may not yet know what that more is, but you feel a knowing that there is more.

As a passionate teacher I love to share the lessons that I have learned in a way that resonates and can be integrated into daily life, no matter where you are on your journey.

You will find ways to work with me 1:1 or in groups, recipes, and an ever-growing library of free Tools ~ blogs, guided visualizations, exercises...

These are tools. This work is for you to do and experience. You won't find a "quick fix" here, but you will find your own power as you relearn to listen to your own Inner Knowing and consciously create the life you desire!

I am also on this journey of life and recognize it is all a practice. Our job is to show up and do the work, not be perfect.

I have always felt a call to truly help others. As a child, I wanted to be a psychologist or a teacher, but something about both of those professions never quite felt like the right fit.

In university I discovered human resources and have been working in the field since 2006. I hold my CPHR (Chartered Professional in Human Resources) and am a strategic partner to senior leaders regarding organizational structure, talent strategy, compensation philosophy, programs that foster continual growth and engagement of employees, and processes and systems that both support the business and its employees.

In 2015, I learned about coaching. Coaching is the bucket that allows me to combine the elements that have interested me within psychology, teaching, and human resources. I completed CTI's Core curriculum in 2017.

As a coach, I will meet you wherever you are, in this moment. I will help you to acknowledge and loosen your judgements around your current situation, whatever it may be. I will not, however, allow you to stay in that place.

Through the tools of Co-Active and Spiritual Coaching, intuition, visualizations, mindfulness practices, exercises, and lifestyle shifts we will work together to create Courageous, Powerful, and Sustainable Action that will help you consciously create the life YOU desire!

Even though I nearly failed PE in junior high, I have been teaching various forms of physical activity since 2006 - and have loved every second of it! There is a form of physical activity for everyone, PE just wasn't it for me.

I love seeing shifts and changes in my students, both physically and mentally. In my classes, you can expect to find a supportive environment that will challenge you both to strengthen and to soften – mentally and physically. You can also count on good music and humour (at least in my opinion)!

If you find yourself in one of my classes, you will likely leave with new knowledge of alignment and anatomy, as well as personal insight.
