I grew up in a tight-knit family and community in Guam. Even though we did not have a lot, I felt like I had everything. My parents taught us at an early age to dream big, pursue what life has to offer with an authentic, open heart and focused purpose. I try to remember their wisdom with every key decision, in how I show up at work every day, and more importantly, how I show up at home.
In 2005 I embarked on my consulting career, and for the next 10 years I was fortunate enough to work as a consultant at both Accenture and Slalom specializing in Program Delivery Leadership and Change Management. I loved helping organizations thrive through change and achieve business results with these great management consulting organizations, but I desired to achieve greater balance in my life between my family and my work family. That led me to Coppei.
Every day I am reminded why I am so lucky to do what I do. I still have amazing clients, I still have brilliant teammates, and I still get to pursue my dreams. Our Coppei Leadership Team leads with the highest integrity, and we get to work alongside some of the most dedicated clients who place their trust in us. I get opportunities to take simple napkin drawings and translate them into persuasive stories and actionable roadmaps and plans, but best of all I do not need to choose between work or life. I get to be a present at home and attempt to teach my kids what my parents have taught me – value relationships, do things genuinely and wholeheartedly, and don’t be afraid to dream big.
I am passionate about chasing My Dreams, and I am Coppei!
