What are you most proud of from the past 20 years?

I take pride in the expansion of my coaching credentials and in my global contribution to the profession through my service at the highest levels of leadership. I served as the Global Director for the International Federation for four years (2019-2022).

What does transformation mean to you and what role do you feel coaching plays in the transformation of society? 

Transformation, to me, involves acknowledging your current position, identifying growth opportunities, and delving into those prospects to generate improved outcomes for both yourself and the individuals you assist.

Coaching plays a crucial role in fostering confidence, uncovering your true self, and revealing the untapped potential residing within you. It extends your capacity for innovative thinking and creativity, enabling you to address personal, professional, and societal challenges by adopting a solution-focused mindset.

 What role has Erickson played in your transformation in the past 20 years?

Erickson presented me with a challenge to further enhance my business-building and entrepreneurial skills. This opportunity allowed me to oversee a global brand and deliver the valuable gift of coaching to Africa through certification programs.
