Balance is so important in life.
I have worked with entrepreneurs from more than 150 countries, had beliefs about different cultures and religions shattered, spoken on stages all over the world in person and virtually–from Albania to Serbia, Qatar, Lisbon and Morocco. I attended delegations to China and Hungary as a teenager. Both my parents grew up outside of the United States. I took my first flight to Finland, my second homeland, at six months. I speak Finnish, French, and Spanish. I took a year sabbatical to travel the world, and it changed my life.
I understand how embedded our cultural, religious, and ethnic belief systems are. I create belonging wherever I go, and I bring this unique perspective and an anti-racism lens to all the work I do.
