International Expertise

Living in Washington DC since 1992 has afforded me the opportunity to embrace and international community, and I now coach globally. During my tenure as Executive Chairperson of the International Monetary Fund Family Association (IMFFA), I researched and performed in an ensemble piece on globalization, "Globalmania," which was viewed by staff of the IMF and the World Bank, along with over 1,000 school students mostly from inner city Washington, DC schools.

Executive Development

Over the years, I have trained numerous executives in goals clarification and visioning and assisted hundreds of people in centering, stress reduction, yoga training and personal development. Studying under masters in the United States and India since 1971, I became certified as a teacher in yoga, philosophy and meditation in 1973. These studies, along with the further practice of Aikido, grounded my understanding of the fact that body, mind and spirit are inseparable. Working in one domain affects all, and consciously addressing all domains enhances and deepens the work.

Women's Issues

While chairing IMFFA, I advanced an education and awareness agenda about domestic violence, so often impacted by financial dependence and exacerbated by living apart from one's home country and extended family. Earlier in my career, I led a state-wide project coordinating over one hundred women's associations in the state of Minnesota, anchoring them in a permanent site suitable for education, outreach and effective lobbying at the state capitol.

I sit on the boards of the Edges Coaching Community, and the University of Minnesota Alumni Association , Washington DC chapter. I'm also a member of the Women's Leadership Society, and the Hellenic American Women's Council. A frequent guest on radio and TV, I also enjoy speaking in a wide variety of venues.
