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

I spent my formative years immersed in diverse cultures and experiences, shaping my multifaceted worldview. Growing up, I was always curious, often lost in books and daydreams about the human psyche. Before embarking on my personal and executive development journey, I traveled extensively, gathering insights from various corners of the world. These travels, combined with my deep-rooted passion for understanding human behavior, aligned with my extensive studies in positive psychology and coaching. Early struggles and personal breakthroughs further propelled my determination to help others. Always gravitating towards mentoring, which eventually laid the foundation for my entrepreneurial venture.

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!”

My desire to be an entrepreneur in the personal and executive space was rooted in my personal journey and a profound realization about the corporate world’s and personal growth unmet needs. The motivation to start my business was a combination of this observed gap and a personal passion for holistic human development. Every time I witnessed an individual’s transformation, be it a CEO or an individual wanting to address their traumatic past, it fueled my conviction.

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

A trusted advisor for Fortune companies, I have worked with high-profile CEOs and political leaders. Committed to increasing the status of women of color and place them in positions of power and influence in the public and private sectors. Cultivating a culture of diversity, equity and inclusion that supports every color, disability, marital status, gender identity or expression, neurodivergence, socio-economic status, political affiliation, race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation or veteran status. Working on sustainable practices to reduce environmental impact.

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

While tangible results matter, what truly resonates with me is the transformational impact on our clients. The growth trajectory of The WellBiz, both in terms of client base and the range of services offered, showcases the increasing demand for a more holistic approach to corporate well-being. Beyond business, being able to use the platform of The WellBiz to advocate for social causes and engage in philanthropy has been one of the most heartwarming achievements.

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?

Certainly! If given the opportunity to inspire change, especially to our young women entrepreneurs who are the torchbearers of the future, I’d emphasize the creation of an equitable workforce. It’s time we move beyond mere discussions and actively work towards closing the wage gap. Women, irrespective of their roles or industries, deserve equal pay for equal work. It’s not just about economic justice, it’s about acknowledging their worth, talent, and the immense value they bring to the table.

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?

Today’s women leaders are an embodiment of grace under pressure, seamlessly balancing multiple roles and challenges. Their leadership often leans towards inclusivity, collaboration, and holistic thinking. Over the decades, women have transitioned from being an underrepresented voice to driving change, innovation, and growth in various industries. However, while the cracks in the glass ceiling are evident, there’s still much work to be done.

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

Your journey, though unique in its challenges and experiences, stands on the shoulders of countless women who came before you. They’ve paved the way, broken barriers, and lit the path. But now, the torch is in your hands, and the world is ripe for the change you can bring.
