My Journey

After graduating with my BA in Psychology and my LLB I felt clear on my vision to become a lawyer. As an ambitious woman, I worked my way up quickly from being a legal assistant, to paralegal and eventually to practicing as a lawyer.

Over the 12 years in my legal career, I managed to learn about the various roles I held and how they work together. I learned how to successfully manage and work within a dynamic team. Having spent so much time working my way up in the legal field, I developed a unique skillset around practice management. I also learned how to navigate the challenges of being not only a first generation lawyer but also a young woman of color in the workplace. 

 This experience led me down the path to becoming a Certified Professional Coach through an ICF accredited institution. It ignited my passion to use what I had learned from my own experiences to support other legal professionals, as well as a passion for D&I work and the importance of authenticity over conformity. 

To help those seeking clarity, confidence, and courage to maximize their personal and professional potential. To help those seeking alignment with their values and feelings of empowerment in their legal career and beyond.

Having worked in the different capacities at law firms, I recognize that there is a gap to help both, lawyers and law firms, develop successful and meaningful practices.
