Creativity is intelligence having fun. - Albert Einstein
In just one word, I am a problem-solver. Is that 2 words?
To elaborate, I am a Design Thinker, an HR Consultant, an Organization Designer, A Change Enable. In another world, I am also virtual tour guide to preschoolers.
Long before I knew what design thinking was, I created my own tagline: “I don’t solve problems; I understand people.” Only now do I understand what that really means. Looking back at my professional journey, through 2 M&As and HR Integrations, navigating the non-profit world in a new country and building my consulting practice, I see traces of the Design process splashed all over.
I am extremely passionate about creating cultures to positively impact organization success. I do that, using the Human Centered Design approach, because today, companies are more about the people than the ever have been.
Clients love me for the creative mindset that I bring to the table. The solutions I help each client create are unique to them and work for them.
When the pandemic hit, I needed an extra dose of creativity and inspiration. So, I created a passion project - Traveling Tuktuk.
Traveling Tuktuk takes first graders to new countries where we explore their cultures, customs, meet animals and eat their food. Through our imaginary vacations, kids learn to fall in love with the world. I wrote about my passion for travel that led me to create Traveling Tuktuk in Nomads: Adventurous Businesswomen who are Changing the World while Traveling.
