My personal and professional life journey can best be captured in the phrase: Change is the only constant.
I have lived a nomadic life, having moved homes over 20 times across the world, discovering new cultures and thriving in new environments. I have switched gears in my professional life 4 times: started in publishing, moved to advertising, then marketing research and now a life skills trainer and psychotherapist.
I have been on a perpetual quest to challenge myself to learn new things everyday and feel fortunate that I have been able to integrate these new learnings and skills into my life and work.
About My Family
I have a huge extended family spread around the world. My nuclear family comprises my husband, son, daughter-in-law, and my bundle of joy – my little grandson born a few months back. I am blessed to have two lovely mothers: my biological mother and my mother-in-law.
The Covid crisis has brought us all even closer together – my husband, our moms, my son and daughter-in-law and me – because we have spent quality time, real and virtual, doing a lot of fun activities.
About My Professional Experience
I have about 10 years experience as a psychotherapist and life skills trainer. Prior to that I worked for over 25 years experience in the corporate sector leading large teams, training and mentoring.
About My Fun Side
I love to create beautiful things using different art and craft techniques and try to incorporate some activity into my daily ME time. Most of the time this involves doodling, drawing, sketching or painting. Another recent passion is upcycling waste material using Decoupage.
