EXPERIENCE

My work in coaching and leadership development began during the four and a half years I spent as a strategy consultant at McKinsey & Company. There I focused on organizational transformations in which developing new kinds of leadership and higher levels of capability was mission-critical. Since leaving McKinsey, I have continued to build and apply my skills in coaching and facilitation for leadership development. My experience designing and delivering leadership development and capability building programs spans small to large enterprises, governmental organizations, universities, and non-profits, and people at a variety of developmental stages – from top team senior executives to mid-level managers, customer-facing and front-line supervisors to teenagers and young adults.

Earlier in my career I worked in international marketing and business development, first for a B2B software company and then in the manufacturing and agriculture sectors.

I am also an educator and scholar, with extensive experience teaching, designing curricula, and advancing the personal development of students in a variety of ways, such as interactive learning, reflective writing, and immersive educational trips abroad.

My professional life has primarily been in the Arab countries of the Middle East and United States. I have also lived, worked, and studied in France, Germany, Turkey, Italy, El Salvador, and Costa Rica.

 

PASSIONS

I am passionate about building bridges of understanding, growing leaders, and transforming organizations to unlock their full potential.

My personal commitment to my own on-going development and sense of vocation to build a more just and peaceful world drive me to work especially with individuals and organizations with a vision for societal transformation.

 

MOST MEMORABLE LEARNING EXPERIENCES

Intensive and immersive language programs have been a regular and important highlight of my life up till now. Several similarly intensive and immersive leadership development programs in a community setting have likewise brought me to new ways of seeing and understanding reality, growing beyond what I previously knew was possible, and personal transformation.

 

FUN TIMES

I enjoy scintillating conversation over shared meals, eye-opening experiences of world cultures, and engaging my body in building greater strength, flexibility, and skills.

Singing is also something I do joyfully. Choirs of various kinds (classical, Gospel, men’s chorus) have been wonderful musical highlights of my life since my teen years.

SUPER HEROES

My grandmothers, for living their lives with profound integrity.
