ABOUT

Committed to Student Success

Flowerstone Learning Services was created by Lizz and Sarah to bring their educational psychology expertise to learning coaching, mental health counselling, and educational consulting services for students and educators.

 

Flowerstone Learning Services was founded on Vancouver Island, one of the few places in the world where the flowerstone rock is found.

Flowerstone is an igneous rock formed during volcanic explosions over 170 million years ago that created beautiful crystal flowers in the rock.

We chose this name to recognize the place we are from, and that sometimes effective learning needs both time and pressure in order to be successful, just like the flowerstone.

Please see our individual profile pages for more information about the co-founders, Sarah Davis and Lizz Alexander

OUR TEAM

SARAH DAVIS, PHD, RCC

Co-Founder

I’ve had the privilege of working with students, educators, and families in a variety of settings and roles for over fifteen years. From working in education as a high school counsellor to my current roles as registered clinical counsellor (RCC), learning coach, consultant, and postsecondary instructor, my priority has been to help students find and define success for themselves. 

I acknowledge with respect that I am an uninvited guest on the traditional territories of the Lekwungen peoples and the Songhees, WSÁNEĆ, and Esquimalt peoples who also have historical relationships with this land I feel so gracious to call my home.

I love spending time with my family and friends in the beautiful outdoors of Vancouver Island, including sailing, kayaking, hiking, paddleboarding, and camping, as well as playing hockey, cooking, volunteering, and supporting the local arts and theatre scene in Victoria.

LIZZ ALEXANDER, PHD

Co-Founder

To put it simply, I am passionate about learning and student success. I love to learn (and conduct research to learn about learning!), and I love helping others to learn and pursue their goals. However, I am also keenly aware of the challenges associated with learning in an academic setting. Despite having a love for learning, I have encountered many of my own challenges while in school. Although giving up crossed my mind more than once, I persisted and am proud of what I have accomplished as result.

Throughout the years, I have had many positive experiences working with students, and it has brought me such happiness to be part of their academic journeys as they learn about themselves, develop their skills, and achieve their goals. I look forward to witnessing more student success as a learning coach and consultant. If I can contribute in any way to positive change for students, I will be thrilled!

I feel very fortunate to live in beautiful Victoria, BC with my husband and three children who keep me on my toes, make me laugh, and amaze and inspire me every day. I also acknowledge and thank the Lekwungen People for allowing me to live, work, and raise my family on their territory.
