Iwona Sienko has over 30 years of nursing and leadership experience in working in various healthcare systems and as an entrepreneur. Her unique positioning in the field of coaching and consulting stems from her integrated education, experience and skill set in the areas of leadership development, operations, HR, finance, clinical practice, as well as a well-established mindfulness practice.
Throughout her career she developed a deep trust in human capacity to heal, grow and change. Her trust in the human process became stronger after healing from chronic stress herself. During that time, she explored the latest discoveries in neuroscience, epigenetics and neuroplasticity. She learned how to build resiliency in the body and mind. She bio-hacked her life to overcome the adversities of her experiences and witnessed firsthand how the body and mind can heal from chronic stress when given proper support in the right environment.
She is an Adjunct Professor with the School of Nursing at the University of British Columbia Okanagan Campus; holds a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and a Masters in Business Administration; and is a certified smartUBC facilitator.
