About Adele Fraser

As a coach, educator and human resources specialist, Adele has always been drawn to supporting the realization of potential and development for individuals and teams. But first and foremost, before Adele dreamt of herself in any of those careers she dreamt of being a mom. She has appreciatively described parenting her boys as ‘her life’s work’, which isn’t too far from accurate as her life and experiences have informed her parenting and her parenting has informed much about her work. After more than a decade of single-parenting behind her, Adele’s boys are graduating from highschool and making moves to carve their own path’s in the world which is giving her the the space needed to reflect on her experiences and how it has shaped the lives of all three of them.
