Welcome! Whether you’re here because you’re curious to know more about me or are contemplating working with me on an upcoming project, I’m glad you stopped by. To introduce myself, I’d like to give you a snapshot about me. I’m passionate about wellbeing on both a personal and professional level.
I have over 15 years of experience in senior management/management advisory roles with multinational companies either overseeing or working in HR departments both in the U.S. and abroad. Over the years I’ve learned that a large part of what managers and HR professionals do is manage the wellbeing of employees; oftentimes without the proper skills to do so. I also know that managers have a huge impact on the wellbeing of their employees, yet most managers never receive management training.
I’m also a Social Psychologist whose academic research focuses on physical and mental health in the U.S. I’m a published academic scholar and a former National Science Foundation and Ford Foundation Fellow. Academic research shows us the influence of stress on wellbeing. Did you know that work related stress is the leading workplace health problem? That’s where I come in, helping corporations to diagnose and address employee wellbeing problems and helping professionals to develop strategies to maintain their wellbeing.
To buffer my work I write and speak on the topic of wellbeing. I’ve been published in Yes! Magazine, Greater Good Magazine and Longreads to name a few outlets.
If you want to learn a little more about my personal wellbeing journey and how it impacts my work, then watch the video below, because for me the personal is professional.
