How I got here
I’ve always loved to travel, so much so that for a while I thought I wanted to be a digital nomad. Then I realized what I enjoy about it so much: getting to know different cultures. Understanding how people with very different backgrounds think and see the world.
I immerse myself into every new organizational culture with the same curiosity, and navigating the differences between people became my passion.
I originally studied to become a lawyer, and you could say that I changed professions, but the things law school has taught me are an integral part of the work I do today. Systems thinking, negotiations, and advocating for the interests of people are only a few of the approaches I can connect to my legal background.
I love to experiment and try new things, but I’m also dedicated to working with evidence-based methods, and those can be hard to come by in ‘soft’ areas like culture. This was my motivation for becoming a certified Radical Collaboration trainer, a framework that’s proven to build organizations that are both high-performing and human-centered.
Every program I design is a unique blend of the methodologies I’ve studied: Radical Collaboration, internal communications, coaching, facilitation, strengths-based approaches, design thinking and more. The result is always something custom-built for specific context and needs.
My mind lives in the future, which is terrible when I want to meditate, but super useful in my work. I usually get called when young, innovative, fast-growing companies reach a transition phase where what used to work doesn’t work so well anymore, they encounter growing pains, or simply want to take control of the story they are writing.
What they appreciate the most about our work together is my ability to get results fast and come up with creative solutions that kill multiple birds with one stone, that I work in a refreshingly friendly manner, and put into practice the abstract concepts others only talk about.
let’s work together
a toxic culture or an interpersonally unskilled boss are the main reasons someone quits their job. People want to feel respected and inspired, and see their values reflected in the workplace.
This means a human-centered, collaborative culture is no longer a nice to have but an expectation our organizations must rise to meet.
And in my experience, many of them genuinely want to. What they’re lacking are the skills or the right structures to make their vision real.
In my workshops, talks and partnerships, I translate intangible things like psychological safety or team dynamics into strategic opportunities and actionable steps that will take you closer to the culture you wish to create.
