Invite Grisel as your Guest Speaker

I've spent my career speaking in front of auditoriums full of people as a facilitator, trainer, and guest speaker. 

I love to discuss all things career. It's my default topic of conversation - always has been. My mission is to put individuals in touch with their true selves so they can live and work more authentically, grow their professional success, and create a semblance of work-life balance.

For the last 20 years, I've helped folks grow toward their professional aspirations. I'm a certified Organization Development (OD) Consultant with a Master's Degree in Industrial/Organizational Behavior. My background is deeply steeped in Psychology and I was a therapist early in my career. After being diagnosed with a rare, life-threatening cancer, I stepped away from corporate life to start two businesses - one consulting firm with a business partner and a career coaching solopreneurship.


I'm a warm, enthusiastic, Gen-Xer and first-generation American who believes strongly that since we only get one life, we deserve to be satisfied and fulfilled. My success is dependent on my experience, tenacity, grit, and resilience. These are characteristics that I have in common with the clients I am privileged to serve.


I reinvented my career after the age of 40, and am now growing on a steadily upward trajectory, on my terms, using my authenticity as the beacon that illuminates my path forward.


It is my mission to help others gain the confidence and skills to do the same for their own professional journey.


My focus is to help people find their true selves and learn how to leverage their unique qualities for the betterment of their lives and the world around them. 

Delivering messages of empowerment with a heaping ladle-full of actionable tools is my superpower. I look forward to a conversation with you and delivering value to your group.

About Me

In 2019, I was faced with the fight for my life when I was diagnosed with a rare cancer. I decided that if I made it out alive, I was going to change my life for the better... starting by grabbing hold of my career with both hands. In 2020, I stepped out of my full-time job and became a full-time independent business owner, launching a consulting business and later a career coaching business which I've built from the ground up.  


In 2022, I published a book titled Trust Your Wings: How I Left My Corporate Job to Start a Consulting and Coaching Business From Scratch. It's written for entrepreneurial-minded folks who are either entertaining the idea of starting their own business, or who have already done so and could use some actionable tips from someone who is walking in those shoes. The book is filled with my real and raw story as a cancer survivor and new entrepreneur: my failures, lessons learned, successes, expectations (what they were and what they should have been), mindset & lifestyle changes to optimize health and therefore success, and tips that worked for me.
