Who is Violetta?

As a First Generation American, first woman in my family to graduate from University and someone who is used to being the only female in the room and at the table, I know first-hand how it feels to be taking action towards your goals and dreams only to be left feeling like you're running on a hamster wheel.

Burn out was a regular thing for me and so was feeling like my work and efforts weren't being recognized, acknowledged or seen.

I often wondered if hard work was supposed to feel like I was exhausted all the time...

Was it even possible to make a real difference in a world where I have to keep proving myself before being respected and taken seriously?

Was I just too much of a dreamer believing that it was possible to have more time to live and and actually enjoy life and my relationships and still be successful?


I worked in Experiential and Outdoor education for over a decade; my dream job and also a real 'boys club!' 

And although working in a male-dominated industry left me feeling emotionally drained and doubting myself, my own abilities and sometimes even my own sanity...

 I eventually realized that I held the power to influence how my work and life looked and felt. 

I knew I could be successful and happy,

get a seat at the table and live a full and purposeful life. 

I wish I had a mentor when I was first starting out who could have showed me that you could be both driven and a goal-getter, without having to fit into the Patriarchal way of being.

Today, I wear may hats.

I'm a Change Expert here to support and guide you to create a purpose-driven life and career that leaves you feeling energized. 

My work is informed through my years in Experiential Education, Holistic Counselling Psychology, Meditation and Mindfulness and EQ Leadership Development. 

I believe that the deep work and attention we place on ourselves today, empowers us to own our voice, be more authentic and redefine how we want success and leadership to look and feel like. 

It's time to shake things up, challenge the status quo and close the gender gap from the inside out.

We start with ourselves.
