With a decade-long background in Accounting and Consulting in North America, I advised and collaborated with top-tier companies on governance, risk management, and internal controls. Drawing from my extensive experience as both a leader and a coach to numerous professionals, I possess a deep understanding of the current challenges faced by leaders. This invaluable insight enables me to deliver targeted and impactful coaching that drives exceptional results.
As an immigrant and a woman of color, I firmly believe that embracing diversity in leadership enhances innovation, fosters inclusive environments, and drives organizational success. I bring to the table a special mix of coaching skills, corporate and entrepreneurial experiences, international perspectives, cultural sensitivity, and somatic practice.
In my practice, I leverage variety of professional trainings as well as my first hand experience:

I am an avid runner. I finished the Woodrow Wilson Bridge Half Marathon in Arlington Virginia in 2016, the Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon in Philadelphia Pennsylvania in 2017, the Scotiabank Waterfront Full Marathon in Toronto Ontario in 2019, and the Luso Half Marathon in Lisbon Portugal in 2022.
I have learned countless valuable lessons from running, and integrated what I have learned into my coaching practice.
I had it all. At least it was how it looked like on the outside.
I was a manager at one of the big four public accounting firms in the US. I made a good living, had an amazing team, and was considered to be a rising star. Professional recognition. Busy social life. Occasional travels and parties. I should be happy, right?
But I was not. In fact, I felt empty inside.
I felt unfulfilled, unsatisfied and stuck. I wanted to change but didn’t know how. I thought about a million different options but was too afraid to start. You know, the usual excuses: I didn’t have the time. I had been working in this profession for so long and this was the only thing I knew. I was getting old. What if my new adventure didn’t turn out well? It felt safe to live a predictable life than to try and fail.
Until I met my coach. Three months after working with him, I decided to immerse myself into the study and began my year-long rigorous coach and leadership training. The experience made me realize how my limited belief had stopped me from trusting myself, and found the strength and courage that was long lost but always within me.
To follow my heart and pursue the life I dreamed, I quit my full time job to become a full time Leadership Coach, and moved to Toronto in service of my coaching business.
I have helped hundreds of leaders find their unique voices and leadership styles for the benefit of them and their organizations. I am proud and humbled by what we have achieved.
