Hi! Welcome to my website. Pleased to meet you.
I am a story-driven communication and media professional. Content is my business. Learning is my passion. Writing is my yoga. That is, it declutters my head, boosts my mood and stretches my brain cells.
Being in the communication field for more than a decade and in journalism for another, I naturally combine the two disciplines through clear messaging and storytelling.
My personal affirmation is to be a voice for positive change. Some of the ways I make this happen is through writing about people who change the world, creating awareness on issues such as diversity and inclusion and applying constructive journalism principles in my work. I love to travel and consider minimalist travel as my sport.
What drives me
I am passionate about learning, continuous improvement (kaizen) and social impact. The kaizen mindset keeps me sharp and on top of all the advancements happening in my field. Dynamic organizations with a clear social responsibility attract me. Innovation that impacts global development inspires me. Progress motivates me. I feel personally connected with the issues of diversity and inclusion, sustainability and corporate social responsibility. Leading communication teams has given me a front seat experience in employee engagement and corporate culture. Since becoming a mother, I have also been interested in early childhood development specifically in the areas of neuroscience and the Montessori method.
How I work
An environment where there is alignment, responsibility and trust makes me thrive. My workspace is characterized by organization, efficiency and a growth mindset. I enjoy working with individuals who understand that progress is better than perfection, are receptive to new ideas and have strong work ethics. In building teams and leadership, I am inspired by the wisdom of Ken Blanchard, Stephen Covey and the evidence-based methods of Gallup (CliftonStrengths). My CliftonStrengths are Learner, Input, Achiever, Responsibility and Intellection. Myers-Briggs classifies me as an ENTJ-A and according to the StrategyProfiler, I am an inside-out, exploratory strategist who prefers choice over compliance.
