As an ICF-credentialed ACC coach and a leadership and management coach on GrowthSpace, I am passionate about helping my clients overcome cross-cultural challenges. Whether you are an expatriate, an immigrant, a professional working in a cross-cultural setting, or an international student, I know you want to succeed in your relationships with people from across a diversity of cultural backgrounds. I know you want to make the world a better place by being more inclusive. I know you want to feel like you belong here. I know you want to have the mindsets, skillsets and plans to achieve your career and life goals. Why do I know? Because I have gone through the same challenges.
Before I moved to the US, I had 7 years of experience in business development for European and the Middle East markets, from which I learned not to be judgmental when working with people from different cultural backgrounds. After I came to the US in 2012 to pursue my MBA at Duke University, like most international students, I had a rough journey – I struggled with landing job interviews because of the cultural differences in job searching. After I started my first job, it took me quite some time to assimilate myself into the US work culture. I even had problems with my work authorization at some point because of the H1B visa lottery, which led me to get relocated to Ireland and to start a new life there for 2 yeas. All these experiences resulted in my self-discovery journey and shaped my commitment to helping people overcome the struggles that come with living a life that spans cultures and languages. Now, as a director leading a global team of 16 professionals in a Fortune 100 tech company, I have been passionate about using coaching to raise awareness of diversity and inclusion and to create an environment, where everyone can feel belonged.
I got my formal coaching training from the Coaching for Life and Work Certificate Program at University of California, Davis. I am also an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) by International Coaching Federation (ICF). My coaching style is non-directive and non-judgmental. My goal is to create a safe and supportive environment to help you explore who you are and what you want to do. By partnering with you to analyze the core essence of the problems, I hope to enable you to get clarity on what you really want to be in your life wherever you are.
