Biography

I empower passionate professionals to be more effective and authentic by developing their own leadership style based on their values and best leadership practices.

By creating a safe space for them to explore themselves and their options, they cultivate a deeper sense of self awareness, strength, and confidence. I support them to gain clarity on what they really want and to discover the beliefs and challenges that may be holding them back. Our work together enables them to create actionable steps and build new beliefs, skills, and habits leading to long term sustainable results.

However, the focus is not only on career. I work with the whole self, how they impact others and how this contributes to the overall satisfaction in all areas of life.

Throughout my 20+ year international career I transitioned through various technical and leadership roles and locations spanning 4 continents.
As I grew from an entry level professional to senior management, I was known for being a straightforward, strong leader who worked well with all types of people regardless of position or nationality.
I have a can-do, results-orientated approach to getting things done across diversified groups, teams, and cultures.

I have been there, survived, and thrived. I have experienced first-hand the highs and lows of working in a fast-paced, complex environment that is changeable on a dime. I understand where self-limiting beliefs can take control of our aspirations. I also have developed some great tools for kicking them to the curb, and building confidence so you can lead your best life on your terms.

I retired from UN work in 2020, turning my full attention to leadership and life coaching. I feel blessed to work with professionals around the world, helping them strengthen and amplify their voices in the workplace (and beyond), so that they can achieve their professional and personal goals and rise and thrive.
