In my 30s, a number of different pressures converged upon me – a lack work life balance, the challenge of growing a business and managing a team, taking on too many responsibilities, and the need to create boundaries with family. I had no idea how to learn these skills on my own. At my partner’s suggestion, I began a 6 month journey of working with a coach. It transformed me and the way I’ve lived my life ever since.
We started ideamix to connect individuals and businesses with the performance advisors, experts, coaches and mentors they need, to live their best work and personal lives. We also wanted to work hard, have fun, learn continuously, and build an amazing team.
I’m a career changer, entrepreneur and lifelong learner. I love sharing stories, connecting people and challenging myself. I’m a huge believer in the idea that you can do anything you really want to if you can unlock yourself.
Growing up in several different countries, I learned early on that family, education, curiosity, knowledge and collaboration are the most essential assets. I was also taught that to whom much is given, from them, much is expected.
When I encountered loss and grief as a child, it taught me to cultivate gratitude and to understand the work it takes to become strong while remaining supple, and evolving beyond both my achievements and disappointments.
I played tennis competitively in high school, attended Harvard University and Harvard Business School, worked in finance at JP Morgan, private equity at Corsair, consulting at G3, and tech at Palantir. I married the man I fell in love with: he’s still my best friend and we have three beautiful children.
In short, I have lived different versions of doing ‘anything’ I wanted. But ‘anything’ is often overwhelming. Developing self-awareness and humility to recognize where we are and what we want is the key to living a life that truly fulfils us.
With ideamix, I’ve been able to combine my love of learning with the joy of building, and helping bring people and communities together. In hindsight, the clues were always there: I loved interacting with people, understanding what drives them and connecting them to their potential.
As a problem solver, I also enjoy creating order out of chaos, creating structures and sharing my insights and solutions.
As a leader, I love building teams and watching the magic that happens when individuals connect for mutually rewarding interactions.
