I have a deep and diverse background in business, training and education. Before starting my career coaching business, Self-Empower Coaching, I was the Director of Entrepreneurship and a Business Instructor at Wake Tech Community College in Raleigh, NC USA. Prior to that, I've held senior management roles in marketing and management for both multi-national and start-up companies, primarily in the medical diagnostics and biotechnology industries.
I hold a master’s degree in business and management from Johns Hopkins University and a bachelor’s degree in medical technology from Neumann University in PA.
Because of my strong belief in giving back, I am an active SCORE volunteer. In this role, I work with aspiring entrepreneurs to help them explore and cultivate their mindset concerning their entrepreneurial experience. I especially enjoy counseling them about business planning with focus on the marketing aspects of their planning.
Just recently, I joined the volunteer ranks of Dress for Success as a career coach. In this capacity, I am able to hone my career coaching skills while helping those who are unemployed or underemployed to seek meaningful employment.
