Hailey Pinksen is a chartered professional accountant, a certified internal auditor, a life coach, and a certified meditation teacher.
You are probably thinking what a strange combination! Hailey started learning about meditation in 2015 when she was struggling with balance in her life. Her career and family life was very busy and at times very stressful. She wasn’t handling the lack of balance very well at all. Her mental, physical and spiritual wellbeing was neglected and something needed to change. That began her practice towards peace and stillness through meditation. She once heard Brene Brown say “teach what you are meant to learn” and she feels like she was meant to learn meditation. Hailey spent most of her life in what she would describe as “negative mental chatter brain” (AKA monkey mind or AKA brain on a stick). It was only with meditation and mindfulness that this chatter began to settle.
Hailey has presented webinars and presentation sessions with IIA Canada on the topic of creativity and leadership. She has been exploring and researching how meditation and creativity relate to her own leadership development and growth and they are topics she is very passionate about. Hailey has also written an e-book called My Six Degrees of Meditation which is currently available on Kobo.
