Maureen Knapp 

Live Your Own Brilliance

Maureen Knapp is a Thought Leader, Personal, Professional & Executive Coach, Mentor and Advisor who specializes in coaching individuals who find themselves in – or who want for themselves - Powerful Life Transition.   


One of Maureen's specialties is partnering with women to define and create the lives they want to live, rather than the ones they find themselves living. She compels those who work with her to actively step into their own authenticity, empowerment, fulfillment and success. Maureen is known for her bold coaching and uncannily keen intuition around her clients' limitations in the areas of empowerment, personal awareness, work/life challenges, stress & anxiety, relationships & divorce, and the gremlin voices that can sabotage even the most valiant goals, efforts and intents.

Maureen is a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC) and an active member of the International Coach Federation (ICF). 


She is a Qualified Lumina Learning Practitioner who utilizes the Lumina 'Spark' Portrait (a sophisticated psychometric assessment) as the foundation for her work with clients.  She is an active member of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) and has contributed as an Emmy Judge.


She is an internationally-educated, world-traveled Finance, Corporate Governance and Asset Management Executive whose depth of experience in both the For-Profit and Non-Profit Business Sectors enable her particularly vast coaching range.  She holds an MBA in Finance, a BA in French, Philosophy and Ballet, has served on numerous boards, is an experienced group facilitator, a parenting expert, and an avid devotee to dance, theater and The Arts. She has survived severe trauma and despite her many successes, she would tell you her life has truly and utterly 'sucked' at times.   All that said, Maureen describes herself as an unabridged 'Life Enthusiaste.'


Maureen's clients seek her out for her range of intellect, experience, resilience, compassion, warmth, courage, humour, insight and powerful intuition. She is inspired by her own experience in beating the odds and confronting arduous challenge to work with clients to evoke the Transformation, Fulfillment and Empowerment they want to live their Best Lives.
