My Story

From my early childhood, I cultivated a deep passion for simplifying complex matters and finding solutions to any challenges that lay before me.

Following the completion of my Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy, I pursued an MBA with a specialization in strategy and project management. This educational journey paved the way for my career in portfolio, program, project, and change management.

Over the course of 15 years, I have dedicated myself to assisting clients in unraveling life’s most significant projects, with a specific focus on organizational growth, career advancement, and cultivating thriving relationships. Through my expertise and guidance, I have helped individuals navigate these crucial areas and achieve remarkable success.


“I went on a quest to simplify my life. I wanted to know more about what differentiated successful businesses and relationships. I then embarked on a project to find this simplicity.”

The ‘Me Project’

I went on a quest to simplify my life as I wanted to know more about what steps I needed to take to experience success at work and at home. This kickstarted the “Me project”. 

As a child, I developed an obsession with simplifying complexities and getting solutions to whatever challenge stood ahead of me. I had to tap into this skill of mine.

As I was faced with the challenge of climbing the corporate ladder as a wife, mum of three and a migrant, it was tough. I realized that so many people had the same challenges so I needed to create a solution.

I thought what if I applied some of the same principles that helped me find success in my career in my relationship? It worked! My life changed! I realized I could empower, equip and enable organizations and people to build their project leadership muscle to successfully manage goals and needed changes as projects.


“As a wife and mum juggling so many balls in the quest for success, I found that success at work was not enough. Rather, applying  project management strategies used at work can help replicate success at home.”

My Stakeholders


The stakeholders depicted on the right side of the journey have been a constant source of motivation for me to seek solutions and create success both in my professional and personal life. This unwavering drive led to the development of the “Me-project,” which gradually evolved into a solution that benefits others.

Through my own journey, I swiftly discovered that when we approach life’s goals and necessary changes as projects, it eliminates the overwhelm and provides a structured framework for planning, managing, and executing. This realization stems from my personal and professional experiences.

Life itself can be seen as a project, and we all possess the ability to be project managers. Whether you are an organization seeking to enhance your business or an individual striving for greater success, I am here to assist you.

I specialize in helping you leverage project management techniques with a strategic focus to effectively manage your career, business, and various other aspects of your life as projects. By adopting this approach, you can attain the desired outcomes you aspire to achieve.
