Ahniko transitioned from a 20-year career in IT to discovering her passion for providing people with the tools they need to get the jobs they want. Through both working one-on-one with clients and extensive facilitation of job search workshops, Ahniko has years of broad experience ranging from assisting at-risk youth entering the job market to guiding clients through a mid-life career transition.
Her core belief: all human beings have a right to the dignity of gratifying employment suited to their values, skills, and gifts.
Completing her Rhetoric and Communications Degree, Ahniko took her post-graduate Career Development Practitioner (CDP) Certificate, her certification for Personality Dimensions Level 1 Facilitator, and earned her Career and Employment Coach Certificate (CECC).
Becoming a facilitator herself for the CECC workshops, she recognized the need for a professional association for CDPs to support each other and thus better serve their clients.
In 2016, Ahniko was presented with Manitoba’s Leadership in Career and Workforce Development, Individual Achievement Award for leadership in founding the Manitoba Association for Career Development (MACD).
