I coach simply because I am!
I am a sojourning lighthouse. The thing about being a lighthouse is that I must always keep the light shining. That takes work, joyful work on myself! My personal motto that guides my journey is "Stand in Truth and Give with Love". I shine my light in service of others. That is where coaching comes in. I coach simply because I am. My gift is I bring people to life! Whether you are a seasoned executive or early in your career, a small business owner or a parent, you are on your journey. I keep the light shining so that you may courageously tread your own path!
I am a dynamic coach, speaker & facilitator
In addition to executive coaching, I speak at conferences geared towards leadership, careers, tech, women, people of color, immigrants et al. My hope with speaking is to spark awareness and confidence in others so that they may take action towards their goals. I also facilitate leadership development workshops and programs for leaders and their teams in the areas of strategic planning, organizational development, change management and team dynamics. My clients are businesses and individuals from Technology, Healthcare, Finance, Energy and Services industries.
I grow by learning, sharing and connecting
I am a certified executive coach, trained by The Coaches Training Institute (CTI)®, the leading coaching training organization in the world. I am an active member of the International Coach Federation (ICF)®, an international organization that governs the coaching profession. I hold both ICF's Associate Certified Coach (ACC) and CTI's Certified Professional Co-active Coach (CPCC) accreditations. I keep up with the latest through groups like World Business & Executive Coach Summit (WBECS)®, the world's leading learning platform for business and executive coaches. My coach-mentor, peer coaches and clients (you!) continually keep me activated. I hold an M.B.A. from the University of Texas at Austin and a B.Sc. in Computer Engineering from the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth.
I find the spark that makes me truly come alive
Working with leaders and teams through Expanded Impact makes me truly come alive! And that's not all. I have almost 20 years of deep experience working in the Tech industry in various capacities such as software engineering, business intelligence and business operations; and across Product, Marketing, Sales, Customer Experience and Information Technology functions. I am a business operations leader in Tech who builds high performing teams, defines company-wide operational cadences and brings strategic initiatives to life, executing from ground up. I enjoy being active in my community; I grew up in Nigeria where I gained an appreciation for the role opportunity plays in changing people's lives. I serve on the Board of Directors for the Housing & Economic Rights Advocates, HERA, a non-profit legal services organization in California. And, I lead volunteer professional development programs for women and people of color at work.
