woman. artist.
leadership mentor and trainer.

my story is about
people and relationships.

learning to be a leader is an exercise of authenticity, humility, self-love, kindness, courage, constant practice and consistency. I have transcended from an aggressive and money driven person to a colleague, supporter and occasional mentor for the people around me. I chose to put kindness and talent development first. now I am sharing this hands-on knowledge, as a mentor, creativity trainer and communicator. finding real purpose and inspiring others is an exploratory journey, but I am here to assist, guide or inspire. my approach combines inner and outer work, mind, body and heart, learned knowledge and intuitive wisdom.

my professional background is a blend of many skills and experiences. I have worked with many people and cultures and visited many places. trained and awarded in communication, advertising and creative strategy. with a versatile, but solid experience in brands, arts and entertainment. ideating or producing collaborative products, structures, teams.
