Growth Seeker. Experience Hunter. Action Doer.
BECOMING COACH CHARINA
I did the Corporate thing. I was a Senior Consultant. I was even an award-winning Career Advisor. I was relatively successful by society's standards - have amazing friends, close to my family, complete with condo and convertible. But I knew there had to be more to life than this.
What started as a mere personal need for change and adventure, ended up being a global journey across 5 continents looking for Purpose and Love (spoiler alert – I am proud to say I have both!) It took me 7 years - a multitude of wisdom-evoking experiences, amazing growth, along with a few crushing mishaps along the way...
I've had jobs I loved, ones I hated, others that I took to be pragmatic and many that were great learning experiences. The consistent thing was that I always helped people and organizations grow and achieve the results they wanted. I'm blessed to have the opportunity to impact people and organizations in ways that are both enriching and fulfilling.
Lessons & Experiences that have shaped me:
My family experienced the Gulf War in 90s
I have an Adventure Social Enterprise in Africa - where I've integrated community development and positive social impact with bucket list experience through ANDA's "Adventures with Purpose”.
I’ve lived in 5 continents and have travelled to 50+ countries seeking adventure and learning everywhere I can.
