What skills and expertise do you bring to the team?

I bring my eagerness to learn and collaborate, my multiculural lens, positive pragmatism, and compassion.  

What do you find most rewarding about your work?

I like to think that I’m contributing to the evolution of humanity. It’s humbling and invigorating that I can potentially improve the human experience with every person, team, organization, system that I have the honor of working with. I love helping people, teams, and organizations figure out who they are, who they want to be, and what they need to do to get there.

What have you learned most recently?

I’ve attended a few Tavistock style Group Relations Conferences in order to cultivate my ability to “sense the field” and investigate unconscious drivers and defenses in people and groups. I’ve learned that the primary task of a group is its own survival and members will be used by the group unknowingly in service of this task.

What characteristic do you most admire in others?

Boldness. Someone who is bold in their kindness, honesty, and generosity. Self-awareness.

Name a peak (learning) experience in your life that had the biggest impact on who you are now?

My year as a full-time graduate student in Vermont was a peak time in my life and shaped me into who I am today. The learning journey was wholistic in that I grew emotionally, intellectually, spiritually, socially, and physically, not only due to my course work but more so due to the lived experience. One particularly impactful evening was when we held a campus-wide conversation on racism and oppression. This event pushed me into baring my own privilege and marginalized labels publicly and solidified my core value of being of service to others, especially the most vulnerable. The experiential nature of learning — experience, reflection, experimentation, conceptualization/integration — greatly influences how I design employee experiences. From high-stakes strategy sessions to company retreats, I make a conscious effort to create space for experiential learning that taps into one’s core values.
