Certified Facilitator Bio

I am a professional certified coach (PCC) that specializes in empowering my clients to find the freedom to go after their dreams and live the life they truly crave. I love experiencing the transformations that happen with my clients and feel fortunate to witness their new lives and ways of being unfold.

As a Pilipina, Asian American, and woman of color with immigrant parents, I know the challenges of navigating between worlds. I'm passionate about the intersections of leadership, cultural upbringing, gender and other identities that play into one’s career and life journey. What learning edges do we need to push on to create the biggest impact for ourselves?

I've been through many life transitions and challenges myself. I've fought my way through my own “rubble”--when the world feels like it’s crashing down with no way out. I am a testament that there is a way through; you can rebuild the parts of your life that you truly want and deserve. I'll help get you there.
