humanart is the outcome of a major career transition, my career transition. Back in 2009, after 15 consecutive years working as an HR leader with large multinational organizations, I found myself asking the question “is this what I want for the rest of my professional life?”.

Things had changed drastically for me on a personal level. I was now a mother of two, struggling to make time and create efficiencies between home and work. My priorities had changed, and along with them, my notion of being happy at work. Some things remained the same. I still longed for the inspiration, the enthusiasm, the creativity, these were the keepers. Others though, like the long hours, the tons of paper pushing bureaucracy, the stillness, I was ready to abandon.

There is this point in time when you have to stop and think, reevaluate, redesign under new light. Major decisions require for major changes. However, every time you’re ready to walk along a new path you are overwhelmed by stress and fear and self questioning. “Will I make it out there?”. I know, I’ve been down that road.

No risk, no reward, they say. As a client put it the other day, “If I don’t do it now, I’ll die wondering if I could have made it”. I prepared, I planned, I kept my strengths close, my fears closer, I took the leap of faith, humanart was born.

Having my Psychology studies and my extensive professional experience as a solid foundation, professional coaching was very naturally incorporated in the HR consulting services humanart was offering. As time went by, my training in coaching deepened and so did my passion and trust to this dynamic process of professional and personal evolution. Not long after it was originally established, humanart transformed itself into an organization offering premium leadership and professional coaching services.

Many people ask me, how do you link your services to art? How did you come up with such a brand name? An artist myself, I stand in awe when exposed to any form of human expression, and deeply believe there is art within every one of us. To me, coaching is the journey to exploring the art of being human.
