Creating happy, healthy and engaged workplaces through purposeful HR practices and authentic leadership
Who I am – I am a human of the world. A wife, daughter, sister, and a mother of two. I am curious. I am a seeker and a soul searcher. I am a dreamer and a believer. I live for today, and I show up for tomorrow.
What I do – I chose HR on purpose, 14 years ago. I didn’t fall into it or get stuck in it. My love for what I do lead me to live and work in four countries, looking at what drives, motivates, and moves people. My professional journey of searching for more egalitarian ways of working, a sense of belonging, and purpose-led me to discover Agile. For the past four years, I have worked as a change agent in HR, bringing the Agile values, principles, and tools to individuals, teams, and organizations wishing to make a transition to more innovative, trustful, and team-centered ways of working. I am an accredited Agile HR practitioner and trainer, and a multi-linguist who seeks to carry forward the new language of HR.
