What I love about SHINE is the opportunity to work with different organizations in their quest for transforming workplaces into spaces where people can grow, connect, and feel a sense of belonging. When I am not working, I am living my well-being through my runs (I am a half and full-marathoner), my yoga and meditation practice, time in nature, my deep connections with friends and family, my passion to learn from books, podcasts, coffee chats with “strangers”, wine with friends, and of course through dancing like no one is watching!
