I am ready to survive and thrive against all odds. I was first inspired to really believe in the impossible being possible from my father. I was equally inspired by my mother who was given a year to live when I was 9 years old and navigated to find every possible holistic measure to survive 40 more years and see her grandchildren. I live to bring dreams to reality in real time and stay with them until they emerge no matter how long it takes. My life’s work of evolving models and approaches to champion others and organizations was born out of my narrow survival of my going down in uncontrolled flight in a tactical military jet where upon pulling the ejection handle, the ejection seat failed to fire on first attempt; a situation I have come to call 2.5 seconds to live., It is now the lens through which I see the world.
