I am an ICF-certified coach with a legacy of working collaboratively to empower leaders with the tools needed to succeed, spanning 18+ years in international environments.
Inherently people-centric, my passion lies in leadership development and nurturing collaborative, diverse, and inclusive environments. My interest in leadership coaching emerged from my experiences navigating change and ambiguity and my observations of the challenges of the modern workforce.
I believe everyone is a leader – and leadership is not merely a title or position. Leadership is about the impact we have on the people around us – and it starts from within. Leading ourselves is the first step to leading others.
Throughout my career, I’ve had the pleasure of serving in a variety of capacities including Senior Brand Manager & Innovation Champion, Talent Manager, and DEI and Leadership Coach. I’ve also been a Business HR partner to senior leaders, wherein we work together to foster more inclusive environments premised upon psychological safety – and collaboration.
As an eager mindfulness practitioner, I often increase my client’s self-awareness and emotional regulation through the application of mindfulness techniques.
Based in Paris, I speak French, Arabic, and English fluently and can argue with a taxi driver in Turkish. I’m a mother of 2 amazing boys; and when I'm not working, I enjoy reading, meditating, dancing, and practicing yoga.
