Where are you from?
Bucharest, Romania. My family immigrated to Nampa Idaho when I was 7 years old. Being an immigrant changed the trajectory of my entire life. I knew from the beginning that America would offer incredible opportunities in my life.
In one sentence, what is your business?
I am a life and business coach for women determined to use their God given talents to rise up and tenaciously influence the world around them.
What was the greatest advice you have received?
Because God is for you, it doesn’t matter who’s against you.
What have you found as the greatest challenge as a woman navigating all the roles we play?
My entire life changed when I stopped disqualifying myself from audacious success. Because women are so dynamic, we want to believe we can do it all but we still get crazy insecure when we put ourselves out there. Overcoming my insecurities and executing with imperfection has been the most liberating practice in ALL of my roles; wife, mama and badass entrepreneur.
Who is your favorite female superstar?
I’m not even going to try and not sound cliche. My mom has been a constant source of unyielding support in my life and her belief in me has sometimes been the only thing that gave me courage. She also continues to grow and evolve as a woman, wife, mother and daughter of the King and it’s dang inspiring to watch her grow. I’m also a huge Beyonce fan because homegirl is FIERCE and impressively unapologetic.
What is something about you that most would not know?
Most people don’t know how much I love and respect my husband or how much I enjoy being a wife. I have a lot of respect for married couples with a truly thriving relationship. I know first hand the kind of hard work, humility and strength it takes to cultivate a fulfilling marriage.
What is your superpower?
My superpower is speaking life-changing truth into people and empowering them to pursue their dreams. I’m also a damn good time- always ready to pop some bubbly and celebrate this beautiful life!
When you’re feeling down or low on motivation what have you found that helps you get back up?
There is nothing more inspiring than people, so when I feel down or unmotivated I seek out friends that are being brave and pursuing their passions. I also love to travel and will gain energy from spending time in a different city with people that I love.
Share with us your greatest accomplishment or achievement?
My greatest professional accomplishment is building a thriving Growth Coaching business that impacts people’s lives on a scale beyond even my own understanding. I took a chance on myself and honored the gifts God knit inside of me, it took a heck of a lot of courage to say YES to myself. When you surrender your gifts to God, you become a piece of a massively glorious puzzle. My greatest personal achievement is raising two little boys to be kind and gracious human beings, being a good parent is not for the faint of heart!
How do you deal with your worst critic, yourself?
I challenge that by pursuing everything that intimates the snot out of me. I’ll admit, I’m a very critical person in all areas of my life but have learned to be empowered by my own high standards instead of crumbling in fear at the (very real) possibility of failure.
