As A Mindful Rebel, I designed every job I’ve ever had. The inspiration for it usually had something to do with imagining the future, engaging people on what it means to show up everyday and creating inclusive workplaces where all are treated with dignity, fairness, and a sense of belonging. Especially if the job involved a standard issue (business) suit of armour for cubicle warfare — now a virtual battle of Zooms. The only thing “uniform” in the workplace that should really matter is presence.
Style, like high performance, is the outcome of meaningful evolution. The expectation of cookie-cutter, if anything, amped up my longing to be the multi-hyphenate me beyond any box on organization chart. I’ve never done well fitting into anything narrow, especially minds.
I’ve actually been a multi-hyphenate creative since I can remember. It started with being the class conscious disruptor in my single digit youth challenging status quo, then mock-trial lead defense attorney in high school. In college I co-founded a diversity-based sorority and was the unofficial career & life coach. By the time I was in the world of work, coaching companies and their leaders to find their true voice, I realized I should’ve been pursuing this multi-niche magic more directly. But the work was good and frankly, we all know every company could use a good makeover.
Today, I’m living and leading the best of who I am through Talent. Technology. & Trust.
- Igniting leaders and teams to glow from within. Sometimes in the mirror and always at life, work & play. Embracing our identity and owning our strengths are the secret sauce to experiencing success on our own terms.
- Helping organizations shine so people can be more of their best self, full time. From the little details and graces to the big blind spots, I coach, curate, and connect the dots between what’s next in the world of work, culture that creates joy from the inside out, and collaboration using right HR technology to simplify a workplace with good stories worth retelling.
- Building leadership & people strategy. Researching, designing, facilitating, humanizing, contouring, blending and other novel ways to transform human potential into playing for performance (if it’s not fun what’s the point?)
We deserve a life well-lived and self-loved. A place and space to exhale, connect with the things we love, build a tribe, and experience wellbeing, empowerment, and joy. So I started @RocktheGLOW. I’ve been curating this labor of love for some time now. Discover more here.
My forever vibe is launching new ideas in to agile, adaptable initiatives with partners who believe in empathy and belonging thrive in safe spaces that support wellbeing. For strategies that ensure profit grows because people do.
My latest vibe is doing this with senior leaders who empower the growth of their people, supported by ethical, intelligent technology & data and talent processes, to deeply understand, engage, and predict human needs. I’m known for learning innovation, inclusive immersive experiences, integrating design thinking into talent development, behaviour-based change, and being a wildcard thinker.
My hive appreciates that leopard print + leading for the future is a force to be reckoned with. Because if you can’t rock your spots, you’re just a page in someone else’s playbook.
