Founder, Embrace Change
I am passionate about empowering and accelerating diverse purpose-driven entrepreneurs and business leaders. I am a curator of deep connections, networking opportunities and safe spaces to elevate one another’s careers and projects. I have been an Entrepreneurial Leadership instructor for 7 years at UC Berkeley and for over 20 years I have designed programs and initiatives that put people first and build the capacity of individuals to initiate positive change and contribute their full value while making a living.
My approach encompasses coaching, group facilitation and disruptive models of organizational and leadership development grounded in equity. My work has spanned three continents and ten countries, and I have worked with social enterprises, accelerators, non-profits, government institutions and academia. I have led hundreds of group workshops and delivered training and coaching in both English and Spanish. I pride myself on my ability to make deep authentic connections with people from widely diverse backgrounds.
