My Story.

The only child of entrepreneurial parents of mixed nationalities, I was raised in Italy as a trilingual citizen of the world at a time when the word “globalisation” didn’t exist. I developed a highly creative, international and business-minded personality soon.

Gaining a higher education and progressing in my marketing career was my number 1 goal for 14 years. I relentlessly devoted all my time and energy to climbing the famous ladder, as an expat in London working in agency and client-side roles. Only later did I realise that I was a “workaholic”.

From 2018 my market sector started to be impacted by a deep crisis and a series of negative events led to my burnout and an illness which lasted 11 months and made me lose 10 kg!

That’s when I started a 2-year journey of self-healing which made me discover coaching. 

Through coaching I became clear of my professional identity and my purpose.

In 2019 I went back to being a full-time student, to be able to help not just businesses but also the people behind the businesses.

After gaining my Performance Coaching qualification in March 2020, I launched my business online in the midst of a global pandemic! 

Since then, I have been making a real difference for people by guiding them to achieve what they want in their careers.

NOW I RUN my business with a coaching heart and a business mind.

My Mission.

My mission as a human is to contribute to make the world a better place. This to me means to embody the belief that kindness is not a “random act”. It’s a daily choice we make every time we engage with people.

My mission as a professional is to make a difference for the people who work with me – by turning them into happy professionals. And I can do that through my coaching and consulting services.
