Now more than ever, we find ourselves at a critical crossroads that is both exhilarating and terrifying. Through this uncertainty, the evolving discourse about identity and work/life views has created new demands and opportunities for companies, institutions and communities. There is a need to more effectively develop resilient teams and programming that allows individuals to design a coherent professional path that connects
who they are, what they believe, and what they do
to design meaningful lives and fulfilling careers.
Over the past ten years, I have had the honor of working alongside leaders at elite institutions of higher education and industry-leading companies and organizations, where I have managed projects, built programs and coached teams in workforce and leadership development. I firmly believe that when individuals are able to connect their personal and professional identities to their professional pathways, teams become stronger, impact deepens and outcomes increase--in the office, in the classroom, on campus and in the world at large.
Kimiko brought a unique and incredibly valuable perspective to our alumni conference. As a civilian who has spent years working with the veteran community, she is able to provide valuable insight that her peers are not able to offer. She excels at channeling her expertise into real-world, tangible advice that veterans can take to succeed. She is also an absolute pleasure to work with!
