About

One day, I was no longer afraid to lift the veil of self-doubt and look my own power straight in the eye. So, I started to ask the hard questions. To befriend the elephants in the room. To reclaim space instead of asking for permission to step in. To shine my light unapologetically, inspiring others to do the same. Shifting mindsets. Driving change. Embracing the risk of being perceived as disruptive, different or bold. Because that’s the definition of a true leader.

My official bio and accolades may convince you to work with me, but it’s the real bio that will make the difference. I look forward to meeting you and helping you step into your power and achieve your vision!

The Real Bio…

I experienced trauma. I lost loved ones. I struggled with limiting beliefs. I’ve been through many challenges, yet each of them propelled me forward and enabled me to develop deep empathy, wisdom and compassion.

I experienced fear and self-doubt. Fear of failure, fear of rejection. Doubt that I am good enough. But at some point, the eagerness to expand my being and transcend my limiting beliefs was stronger than any old programming that held me back.

So, I reclaimed the steering wheel of my own journey, holding onto the only thing I knew for sure: whatever happens, I will be okay. If I fail, I start over. If I lose, I get stronger. If I die, I lived like a warrior. This gave me freedom. So, I started to loosen the grip on tomorrow and anchor myself in the now; because now I trust deeply in my ability to rise. And I am confident I can help you rise as well. If there’s one thing you can be sure of, then this is it: I root for you!
