My Story: an executive, a mom, a life-long learner, a coach
In my previous life (before coaching), I was an executive for large international corporations in the Fashion Industry. I worked in Paris, France, and NYC. and traveled the world, looking for ideas and suppliers. This job needed good communication skills, creativity, and initiative. I especially enjoyed working globally with people from different cultures. I had to adapt to their ways of working and found it fascinating.
My professional life and interests changed when I had my children. As they were diagnosed with A.D.H.D., I looked for ways to help them learn differently. I read many books on neurosciences, neuroplasticity, and learning and the brain. I understood that we could learn using the different parts of our brain, create new habits by developing new neuropathways, and therefore, create lasting change. I could now see possibilities and opportunities. Learning became fun and holistic.
Years later, I remembered these learnings and used them to survive stressful times. After this chapter of my life, I was determined to learn the science behind it all.
