Self-Empower Coaching
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.

Summary Statement
I founded Self-Empower Coaching to help you mature, successful professionals to explore and discover your next meaningful career move. Our focus will be to find and pursue the deeper satisfaction and significance you seek.
My passion for this work stems from my personal experience with multiple career transitions and reinventions, and my desire to help you discover and cultivate your life's purpose and passion, then to align it with your career to reinforce your success, deepen your satisfaction and enhance the significance you're seeking.
Coaching Philosophy
My philosophy is that we can achieve our greatest desires in our careers and lives when we develop the positive mindset to explore, to be curious, and to question long-standing limiting beliefs about ourselves. And then, to step out in faith "be living" in our greatness. Together, we will explore, decide and act so that you pursue and land a career you woudl love. It will be my honor to take the journey with you.
