Meet Our Founder

Hey there πŸ‘‹ I'm Aura Telman, Founder of Thirteen Thrive.

Imagine this: A young immigrant from Romania arrives in Canada at the age of thirteen, equipped with nothing but ambition and a desire for adventure. That's me! Those formative years taught me invaluable lessons about the importance of community, inclusion, and finding your place in the world.

Fast forward a bit, and here I am, in the land of HR, with over a decade of experience shaking things up in the corporate world. I'm also a certified mindfulness practitioner and advocate for mental health, adding a unique dimension to my approach. My goal? To not only enhance individual experiences but also revolutionize your company culture from the ground up.

My work has been recognized by industry leaders and featured in prominent publications like Nasdaq, Thrive Global, and Brit + Co. So, if you're ready to elevate your company to new heights, let's connect!

Our commitments to you.

We commit to showing up authentically and building trust throughout our working relationship.

We commit to fully supporting you the way you need to be supported β€” there are no assumptions in this space about what you need.

"Aura is very authentic and insightful when she provides coaching and support to leaders, after working with Aura, I was clear on where I needed to direct my focus. She helped me envision a pathway forward that was aligned with my goals and values. I would recommend Thirteen Thrive to anyone who wants to lead and manage in a less prescriptive and more authentic way."
