LINDY HUGHES PFEIL
Before marriage, motherhood and emigration, I taught undergrad English Literature in South Africa. Since then I have been a dance and yoga instructor, restorative justice facilitator, editor and accidental burlesque performer.
My background is in Journalism, Communications and Psychology (M.Sc). I am a professional coach and Guided Autobiography facilitator (certified by the Birren Centre for Autobiographical Studies). My first book, It Never Stays in Vegas, surprised me by bringing the most fantastic people into my life. My second book, a memoir, The Common Wife, will be twirling its way into the world sometime soon.
I work with individuals, families, teams and organisations and my greatest thrill is witnessing people uncover the magic in their stories. I am a Member of the Canadian Psychological Association, the International Institute for Reminiscence and Life Review, the Royal Academy of Dance and the North Shore Immigrant Advisory Council.
I am tickled pink to have received the 2018 West Vancouver Citizen of the Year Award. Thank-you West Vancouver Chamber of Commerce!
