About The Speaker, The Trainer & Coach

After fifteen years in the policing industry, Carolyne Rashford decided to pursue her dream to motivate and inspire others to achieve excellence. Her experiences as a police officer, working mother and first generation immigrant afford her a unique perspective. It is this diverse viewpoint that Carolyne draws from to connect with her audience. Her passion to share lessons of self empowerment and the importance of self-care gave birth to her professional speaking and coaching career. It is Carolyne’s belief that everyone can achieve their goals if they believe in themselves. Carolyne teaches individuals and groups how to connect with their ‘inner genius’ and utilize their gifts to maximize their potential.

Carolyne moved with her family from Africa to Canada in 1982. Raised by her mother the family settled in Alberta. She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree majoring in Psychology from the University of Alberta. She moved to Hamilton and was hired by the Hamilton Police Service in 1991.

Carolyne is a wife and mother of three incredible children. She counts these as her two most cherished accomplishments. She keenly realizes that without the support of her remarkable husband, her dream would have never become a reality.

Carolyne strongly believes in community involvement, her participation includes;

  • Current a board member of the Blossom Club
  • Past Hamilton YWCA board member
  • Coached basketball at various levels including Rep (Transway Girls)
  • Raised funds for McMaster Hospital by competing in the ‘Cops and Cats’ charity basketball games

Carolyne chooses to live her life according to Maya Angelou’s quote:

do it.”
