I stand for:

Making a difference in people’s lives and building true long lasting relationships

Caring for people’s well being and growth is sincere and profound. Whether I’m facilitating a brainstorming session with my clients, speaking to an audience at a conference, teaching a class about brands or having a conversation with a bestselling author, my actions are always aligned with my purpose. That’s what leads to authentic fulfilment.


passion ANd enthusiasm
Integrity and accountability
knowledge and growth


If all of the above speaks to you,if your values align with mine, then let’s collaborate!


What is the best part of your job and why?

The best part of my job is people; authentically connecting with people and developing deep and caring relationships with them. This holds true with my clients, with members of my team, and it’s also why I love business development and networking. Without people, I simply wouldn’t be able to fulfill my purpose.
It aligns with the fact that I’m an ENFJ.

What do I do?

Seeing the world through someone else’s eyes, stories and lives, not ours. Listening to others, genuinely understanding them requires this perspective taking shift. If everyone did this at every interaction they had with every single human, from strangers all the way to our family, friends, colleagues and clients, I believe humans would be more understood and accepted despite their beautiful differences.
