Canadian-born Coleen Marenich began her CRV training with Lyn Buchanan in 2001 and spent the next 3 years progressing to the advanced level, becoming the first Canadian civilian to achieve that level of training from Lyn Buchanan. Coleen was chosen to become the Canadian CRV training facilitator for Lyn Buchanan, a role she enjoyed for 7 years, during which time she also became a mentor to many of her students. In 2004, Lyn Buchanan trained Coleen for the position of CRV Project Manager in her company. Coleen subsequently held the position of Project Manager with her CRV project team.

At Lyn Buchanan’s request in 2005, Coleen created a unique online CRV training programme for advanced CRVers to help them move from being ‘practice CRVers’ to becoming highly effective CRV project team members. Coleen has held the position of Programme Manager and Trainer as the programme has become increasingly sought after. In 2007, Coleen created the Troubleshooting Workshops for CRVers, and in 2009 she gave a keynote lecture with Lyn Buchanan at I.R.V.A. to outline their new standard for training project audiences and to showcase the level of CRV talent they were working with on their projects.

Over the years Coleen has authored magazine articles covering everything from introductions to CRV, to details of her CRV training methods and programmes, to a two-part article entitled ‘Ethics in CRV’ in Daz Smith’s Eight Martinis magazine. Coleen also served as Editor of Eight Martinis for many years.

When Coleen created his own CRV Basic, Intermediate and Advanced training and mentoring courses – instead of holding 3-day workshops – Coleen created programmes for the next generation of CRVers that could be offered entirely online in one-to-one private training classes with a focus on the ethical practice of distance viewing. Using online conferencing technology, Coleen Marenich now teaches and coaches CRV students living all over the planet, some from as far away as Australia, Iceland and Europe, the United States and many in her home country of Canada.
