I feel alive when I learn, and I feel complete when I create opportunities for others to learn, grow and smile.

All my life I have done what I was supposed to do: study in a top university, work hard, and be the perfect super woman. I had a successful career as the CEO of a fast growing company while doing a MBO – Management Buy Out –  in partnership with a Private Equity. As a single mum, I was also working 14 hours per day, barely spending time with my two children. I was lucky that my body began to give me signs of alarm. My daughter told me one day “Mami, stop saying everything is ok. You are not ok, I can see it in your eyes.” From that moment on I decided to take the control of my own life back.

I believe that companies can create an environment that supports the happiness of their employees and a more balanced life.

In workplaces today, teams are still competing instead of cooperating, and so many people are completely burned out. I believe this can be changed. I believe that companies can create an environment that supports the happiness of their employees and a more balanced life.

My vision is a world of healthy organisations contributing to a more sustainable world with better opportunities for all of us, specially for our children. My passion lies in creating the opportunities and the right environment for learning and growth to happen. I support organisations to realign their goals with their essence and to develop their human potential, so they can sustainably grow and become a healthy and profitable system for everyone.
