"My journey revolves around meaningful growth, transformative change, and empowering those around me. From leading teams to shaping sustainable business, my passion for positive impact remains unwavering."

"I'm a change leader, driven by meaningful growth rather than change for its own sake. My journey began in supply chain management, where I progressed from engineering roles to strategic and senior leadership positions. I've led diverse teams, from factory workers to operational staff and warehouse operators to qualified engineers and other managers, all centred around delivering quality excellence.

My expertise in driving change has been complemented by my ability to craft innovative processes, frameworks, and strategies that resonate with stakeholders. This led me to identify as an "intrapreneur," consistently championing transformative change and influencing management, boards and market leaders, eventually shaping me into a sustainable business designer.
Over two decades, including a leadership tenure at Unilever as head of the supply chain or as a sustainability leader, my commitment to responsible business practices grew. Leading the Unilever Sustainable Living Plan alongside CEO Paul Polman provided hands-on insights into sustainable business before I went back to college for more formal education and connecting with the Impact Hub community and start-ups, fueling my entrepreneurial spirit.

The most rewarding part of my journey has been the positive impact on those I've mentored. Empowering Brazilian operators, and truck drivers, board members internationally and coaching women to ascend to leadership roles has been gratifying. These experiences, as diverse as they are, help me support shaping leaders into more conscientious ones and drive my commitment to fostering positive change.

My journey isn't just professional; it's personal too. Integrating mindfulness and self-awareness into my leadership models allows me to balance professional excellence with genuine human qualities.
Colleagues I've collaborated with have consistently highlighted my impact. As a mentor, I encourage critical thinking through insightful questions, fostering focus and growth. My open communication style encourages stepping out of my comfort zone and tapping into hidden strengths and passions through regular participation in speaker events.

Through consistent value creation and visionary leadership, my journey continues to evolve. My multidisciplinary expertise, collaborative mindset, and results-driven approach define my contributions. I'm dedicated to delivering on my vision and driving tangible results through focused execution."
