My Story

I am a Certified Executive Coach and Certified Co-Active® Coach experienced in developing business professionals, specially those working or considering going into family businesses – or making a break from it to forge their own path. My focus on family business is born out of my passion for family enterprises and my desire to help next-generation leaders take ownership of their lives and careers.

Whether a client wishes to find his or her place within the family business or hopes to leverage existing experience to pursue alternatives, including entrepreneurship, I am able to provide coaching, training and leadership development, helping them identify their goals and develop and implement action plans to meet them.

Furthermore, as a credentialed family business adviser, I am equipped to provide guidance on matters such as succession planning, ownership, and conflict resolution within the family enterprise.

Professional Experience & Clients

I have several years of work experience in management at corporations and family businesses. Also, I have had the opportunity to live and work in different countries where I have always contributed to positively impact the entrepreneurial community. As an example, I worked as leadership coach, facilitator and consultant for Women’s Initiative in San Francisco, an ONG that helps low-income women to create and run their own businesses. Later on, during the time I lived in Greece, I worked to create a Family Business Association that would promote educational events and networking for family business in Greece. From 2017 to 2019 I have worked as an Executive Coach and Facilitator in Berkeley Executive coaching Institute . I am now the CEO of  Group Leche Rio S.A.
