Connecting with people

Connecting with people

The diversity of my life and work experience as a teacher, coach and consultant with individuals from many different cultures has made me more sensitive, informed and open-minded. I coach skillfully and inspire others. 
I connect with people and guide with care and insight.

Taking on challenges
I love a challenge and I am good at helping others meet theirs.

During my own career, I have moved several times, taken on new challenging positions, worked under stressful living conditions. In each place, I sought and found positive strategies to manage and succeed. I evolved from being a teacher to consultant and coach. I know what it takes to overcome challenges and can help others achieve their aspirations and goals.
