Tell us about a time you showed compassion at work.

Every day. Through Eliana's Light, I support families with children who have medical complexity by providing a collaborative, community-based approach to care that focuses on their whole health and wellbeing to enhance their quality of life. With Whole Health Self-Care, I help mission-driven women leaders release stress and connect more deeply to themselves and others so they can experience greater fulfillment, a deep inner peace, and an enhanced quality of life.

Tell us about a time you showed leadership at work.

As the founder and president of a non-profit and social-enterprise, I have opportunities to learn and grow in my leadership capabilities each day. I actively seek feedback, input, and collaborations. I look forward to opportunities when I can shine the spotlight on others, and celebrate their achievements and contributions.

What are you most grateful for?

Each person, each moment, each thing in my life.

What advice would you like to share with the next generation?

Know you are worthy and loved, take care of yourself and others, and let your inner light shine while you express your fullest potential in the world. Humanity and our earth need the kind of compassionate and empathetic leadership you can embody.

What makes you feel most fulfilled?

When I know that my presence, an action that I've taken, or something I said made a positive difference in somebody's life.
