Hello, I’m Mladenka

I am a Registered Health Coach (HCA-RHC™) and Life Coach. My passion is working with individuals who are stressed, burned out, and overwhelmed. I help them shift into living a life that is more clam, balanced, joyful, and abundant.

For a little background, here is a snapshot of my life: Born in Yugoslavia and raised on a beautiful farm; refugee to Germany at the age of 7; immigrated to Canada at the age of 10; spent most of my summers building houses; competed nationally in both volleyball and weightlifting; became certified in banking and business and got a civil engineering degree; travelled to beautiful places around the world; worked on construction sites as a labourer, equipment operator, project manager, and engineer; had a child; designed a few houses and built a couple; became a single mom; personally turned my basement into an apartment after work and became a land lady; sold 90% of all my material belongings and moved for the 27th time. I made big changes in my life after reflecting upon what mattered most to me. I now spend much of my free time doing the things that I love and want to do.

By life presenting me with such diverse experiences, I’ve learned a lot about what it takes to feel joyful and fulfilled on a daily basis. After decades of working in the public and private sectors, I realized that people are struggling on a personal level and need help. Sure, material things such as roads and buildings help us, but that is not the kind of help I see the need for. Behind closed doors, people are suffering because they are struggling with depression, addiction, stress, anxiety, burnout, self image, bullying, neglect, money, and many other challenges. When an individual is ready and willing to address their fears, humilities, and self-sabotaging beliefs they can free themselves and feel fulfilled.

The help I offer is one that comes from a combination of life experience and training. I know making changes and life decisions can be frightening and very difficult. My one-on-one coaching is catered to every person’s needs, prioritizing their feelings, and giving them a safe space to express themselves, be heard and let go of their roadblocks. Together we discover different approaches to life’s challenges, and you will learn tangible tools that you can implement to improve the quality of your life. If you have a burning desire for change in life, I invite you to experience coaching and see where it leads to.

I wish you a lovely day and look forward to meeting you.

What my clients are saying...


"I started one of Mladenka's 12 Week Programs hoping to change 2 or 3 habits that were holding me back but I ended up realizing that I've grown much more than I expected. Mladenka is a genuine, warm, caring person that helped me identify limiting beliefs and how to set up for success. She walks alongside you, helps you through your situations and challenges you to carve that path in the jungle. I highly recommend Mladenka and her programs to anyone looking for a fresh start or wanting to go to the next level."


"I can breathe again freely, I’m smiling more, laughing more and every day I continue to move forward into a life I can finally visualize, that is all my own. Mladenka was exceptional in her approach in coaching me through the 12 Week Program and keeping me motivated and on track. She created a safe space to which I felt comfortable sharing my fears and guilt over vices (negative habits) that I adopted over the pandemic. Mladenka gently directed me to choose different habits that helped me make changes that resulted in positive change in my life. A 16-hr workday became 8-hrs. My personal life returned after 6-yrs absence. I have returned to my art practice, I sleep more, I spend more time with my animals, and I now make my health and happiness my first priority every day. My stress is reduced, my anxiety has disappeared, and I have started to breathe naturally again after years of holding my breath always tensed for the next anvil to drop. Thank you, Mladenka, for this beautiful gift you have given me."


"Before I started Mladenka's Clarity Catalyst course, I felt stuck and was spinning my wheels trying to find what I wanted out of my career and life. Underneath that, I believed I was not good enough. Going through this course with Mladenka was life changing! She gave a lot of useful tools (my favourite was the journaling prompts) I could try out in my own life each week which was really fun! She was a great listener and asked the right questions to help me dig deeper into what I wanted out of my life. She acknowledged and celebrated the progress I was making (especially the stuff I didn't notice) and knew how to help when I was struggling. After finishing the course, I know myself much better now and I'm working towards a career and life that excites me! Instead of feeling not good enough I feel really confident and have great positive self talk. To my surprise, within the last few weeks I've had 3 people tell me I walk around with new confidence and a bigger energy. I highly recommend working with Mladenka!"


"Mladenka is a delightful and knowledgeable coach. She is full of empathy and I felt relaxed and at ease right from the start. I thoroughly enjoyed our powerful coaching session and she helped me transform limiting beliefs which boosted significantly my self confidence."
