  1. Tell us who you are!

    I am an executive coach working with Fortune 500 companies as well as private companies.

  2. Tell us more about your career steps and other projects you were part of!

    My coaching work has been focused on assisting high performing executives during periods of business change as well as achieving work-life balance.

  3. What does “Social Capital” mean to you?

    Social Capital is about investing in the most important asset we can grow both professionally and personally. At the end of one’s life we all remember the people, our relationships to them and how they influenced us. Recognizing the value of this capital and consistently growing it, has become a critical skill in a rapidly changing business environment. Security stems from your network and the depth of their belief in your value and abilities.

  4. What makes you successful in life/current job?

    Combining a deep desire to empower others to experience their potential in ways they hadn’t thought were possible and guiding them to do it through their own values and motives.

  5. What is/has been your biggest achievement professionally and personally?

    Professionally: Opening doors to create a much more personal and rewarding experience inside very large corporations for individuals who need to get to that next step.

    Personally: Learning to be fully present with my 11 years old daughter

  6. What skills, experiences or incidences helped you to get you to where you are today? What hindered?

    Recognizing what I was innately passionate about was something to cultivate as a primary strength. Too often there is a major focus on improving weakness rather than really maximizing strengths.

  7. What are your aspirations as a 1World Mentor for the 1World Social Capital Program?

    Contribute in a meaningful way to the career and personal life of a mentee.

    Having been influenced greatly by mentors I know the tremendous value a single conversation can have and therefore wish to pay that forward through this program.

  8. What can you offer your 1World Mentee?

    Insight into the mindset of many individuals they need to influence to open doors to the next step in their career.

    Strategies to grow and build their network to better influence their career.

    Define and overcome limitations that hinder their ability to progress more rapidly.

  9. What does your ideal 1World Mentee look like?

    Open minded, very hungry to grow, willing to try.

  10. What are your aspirations for your 1World Mentee?

    Achieve more in the next year than in the past 5 years combined.

  11. Do you believe there is a glass ceiling for young female professionals? If yes, how can we break it?

    I believe all limitations are self-imposed. History is filled with individuals both male and female who took a status quo and transformed it through their own choices and actions.

    My work with individuals of all backgrounds has shown to me that breakthroughs are a combination of internal transformation and external strategies which need to be measured on a regular basis.

    Young female professionals have a unique opportunity to align reality with their aspirations.
