Invite Grisel to be your Guest Speaker
I love to discuss all things career. It's my default topic as an individual - always has been. My work involves helping individuals get in touch with their true selves so they can live and work more authentically and grow their professional success because of it. I'm called to do this work because I had a life-threatening bout with cancer in 2019 and I made a decision that if I made it out alive, I was going to change my life for the better... starting with my career. So I stepped out of my full-time job and became a full-time independent business owner. Now, I help people make important decisions about their career paths, whether they decide to remain an employee or create a successful business of their own.
For the latter, I recently published a book titled Trust Your Wings: How I Left My Corporate Job to Start a Consulting and Coaching Business From Scratch. It's aimed at the entrepreneurial-minded folks who are either entertaining the idea of starting their own business, or who have already done it and could use some actionable tips from someone who is walking in those shoes. It's filled with my real and raw story of life 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.
My success is dependent on my experience, tenacity, grit, and resilience which all have served me well as I went from reinventing my career now growing on a steadily upward trajectory.

I've spent my career speaking in front of auditoriums full of people as a facilitator, trainer, and guest speaker.
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 life-threatening rare 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, laid back, enthusiastic, Gen-Xer and first-generation American who believes strongly that since we only get one life, we deserve to be satisfied and fulfilled. So I jumped into this work with both feet. 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.
