I help individuals shatter the notion of work/life balance, by leading a purposeful life through their work, so that they can make a difference while being a happier and healthier version of themselves every day.

Who am I

 I am a certified professional coach, a certified project manager and a woman in tech. I have been through multiple career transitions from scientific research to managing IT systems to Data Analytics to the best of all: Life Coach.

In my years of jumping—or being thrown—into new career paths and finding my way to success, the most valuable quality I have learned about myself is that I am first and foremost a Student for Life and a Student of Life. That’s not a typo or a repeat—it’s a way of looking at life: Life is a learning experience. 

Embrace changes and learn from them. 

See potential growth where others see misfortune, inconvenience, or extra work.

What is Ctrl Alt Begin?

My coaching practice Ctrl Alt Begin stands for Controlling your choices, Altering your actions and Beginning your breakthrough.

Through coaching, I help you identify the default tendencies, beliefs, and perceptions you have adopted over the years. I work with you to alter the tendencies, patterns, and habits that do not serve you and create new ones to empower more conscious choices.

By consistently choosing how to respond to your environment, you can get the results you desire.

Control you choices, alter your actions, begin your breakthrough.
