What were your initial years of growing up like? Tell us about your life before starting your corporate journey/venture/initiative.

I would say I grew up in a fantasy world. I grew up in a very abundant community. We have a swimming pool, golf course, club house, tennis courts and the beach is 5 minutes drive. In this gated community, my school is there, we have a church, an airstip for the private planes. It’s a community where everybody knows everybody. I grew up with my classmates from kindergarten to high school. At the age of 15 we all go out of this community for college.

Every industry that is now a large-scale, top-notch business once started as a small idea in the minds of entrepreneurs. What was that idea or motivation that made you start your business /initiative? What motivated you within to say YES, go for it!”

The motivation that made me start my own Baking Business and Life Coaching Business is to get out of being an employee. Having full control of my time and spending it on things I love to do which is helping people transform their lives.  Going back to when I was in coaching school, I was working on the module about Finding My Purpose. And I was reflecting and I have that a-ha moment. “I had an Epiphany.” “Wait a minute, thats my name, Epiphany.” Once people have that sudden insight, that revelation; that’s where transformation usually starts. They have to realize it, discover it first then action follows which is called change..

Tell us something about your initiative or current role. What is it about, and what impact are you trying to make?

I can say, I am an agent of Change. A human compass calibrator. I am part of the mission to make wisdom go viral. To co-create the life that they always wanted.

Your journey and your vision are very inspiring, but are there any achievements or accomplishments you would like to mention?

I was awarded by The BoardRoom Magazine with Distinguished Achievement on “Exceptional Contribution in Leadership to the Membership Experience.

Would you like to share with our young budding women entrepreneurs the change you would like to see in the world if given an opportunity?


Women are a growing force in the workplaces worldwide, standing shoulder to shoulder with their male counterparts. There are cracks in glass ceilings everywhere, with many women breaking through to carve out a space right at the top of the pyramid. What are your thoughts about women leadership today?

I think women leadership today is great. Having diversity is also important as this will give us different perspectives on things we are creating and trying to improve in the workplace.

What would you want to say to our young women leaders/audience reading this?

Define your passion and purpose. Create that vision board. Be involved in your community as this will keep you grounded in life. Be selective with the people you spend time with as you become who you surround yourself with.
