My life has taken me on a journey living on two continents and across cultures; parenting; working in high tech and humanities; partnering with clients in high tech, healthcare, education, manufacturing and finance; making life transitions; moving through grief due to loss of parents and a dear husband; trying work-life-balance and ending up with a life that balances out; reflecting on it all poetically.

I have mentored professionals, parents and students, served on the board of a non profit and have volunteered for non profit organizations.

It is my belief that every person possesses the capacity to lead.

Yes, You Can!
