More About This Virtual Event
Raia ‘Coach’ Carey is a firm believer that everyone is capable of greatness, and she’s made a career of empowering others to reach it.
Celebrated Coach, Media Maverick, and Manager of Culture Diversity & Inclusion at KickKids Foundation, Coach Carey is inspiring corporate wellness at Canada’s largest children’s hospital, and at every company she visits!
In every role, she is dedicated to helping her clients—from individuals to corporations—access their untapped brilliance.
Coach Carey’s passion for supporting others dates back to a childhood marked by challenges. In school, she was bullied by her classmates for her race and weight. Academically, she struggled to translate her French Immersion education into English reading and writing skills. Still, Coach Carey didn’t allow those issues to derail her. Instead, she turned inward to find the confidence to be authentically herself, foster meaningful connections, and inspire others to do the same.
