I help organizations and business leaders flourish and stay ahead of the curve. I am an Advisory Manager in Financial Management with a mission to create lasting value that is meaningful to all parties involved, including myself.


I am a trained Economist (B.Sc. and M.Sc.) and graduated as top of my class from the MBA program at Washington University in St. Louis with a focus on Finance and Investment Banking, and Strategy Consulting. 

I recently moved from Chicago, IL to Manhattan, NY and always up for new challenges, discovering places and meeting new people. 

I am constantly challenging myself to figure it all out: life, success, career. I created this safe place to discuss how you can master the mindset to reach your full potential, overcome difficult situations and make the best out of life when you are stuck. My passion is to Inform, Illuminate and Inspire to radically transform life and business into an intensely meaningful story.

If you think I can help you, please email me using the contact form below. I would love to hear your story and untangle your challenges. I read every email.



You were born to win, but to be a winner, you must plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win.

Zig Ziglar

Make the Winning Mindset your life philosophy and actively create the life and career you deserve and that is intensely meaningful to you. We are the single greatest influencers of our lives and our destiny. It is time to take full responsibility for our own success and for the success of the organizations we are leading. 

Reality is not outside, it is inside. Events happening outside of you, words being said to you grow into reality when they enter the hardware (brain) and run through your processing system (mindset). It is your mindset that drives the interpretation - problem, pain, opportunity, fresh start? - and initiates your reaction and action. 


Breakthroughs come from developing and integrating powerful habits that reinforce laser focus, persistence, learning, passion, courage and embracing who you are. None of us wins all the time. We need to be wise with our energy and have a strategy that wins us the life that is dear to our heart. Remember, lost battles are as essential to winning as glorious victories. Make it count!

At this point, I have to warn you that dedication and commitment are key to elevate your success as an individual and as a business professional. High achievers work towards their goal hour by hour and day by day.

If you are a business leader you can apply the Winning Mindset for building high achieving teams for maximum impact, developing laser focused value creation strategy, playing the game better than anyone else or inventing new rules for it.  Are you ready?

your perception of time is everything.

Time is our most valuable asset. Every decision we make about how we spend our time greatly impacts our life. Where we live (commute time), when we go to bed, how we respond to distractions, how much time we spend exercising, writing, reading, working, with our loved ones. Routine slips into our days unnoticed and it rules them by the time we realize what's going on. If you lost interest in what you are doing and don't know the purpose of your work, life, relationships or acts, you need to STOP NOW. If you keep going down the wrong path, do so knowing that no one will give you back those hours, days and even years. Time to execute your #WinPlan is very limited. Don't waste it.

Ask yourself about everything you spend time on: does it contribute to my win plan? It is not about what you do but WHY YOU DO IT. Be relentless about it.

Don't be a stranger,
I would love to hear from you
