Things That Shape Me
I used to joke that I was a trifecta diversity hire: young, female, and non-white. The reality was less funny.
I’m a 1.5 generation immigrant to the United States and have worked on 6 continents and across industries.
When I blew out the candles on my 5th birthday, I wished for world peace. That is still what I wish (and work) for.
“If we want to be heard, and if we want to create spaces where other people can be heard, we have to understand how power, identity, privilege, and learned patterns lead us to silence.”

How I Can Help
I write about effective communication, using your voice, and how to fully unleash talent.
From keynotes to workshops, I use relatable, real-world examples to engage and equip participants.
Trained as a mediator and lawyer, but with values of humanity and connection, I help people navigate differences.
