In my new professional role as President and Owner of my own business, Next Gen Latinos, LLC, I am combing the experiences and talents of the first 20 years of my professional experience from higher education. I became a student affairs professional because I loved working with students in the role of advisor to help encourage them and empower them to become more self-aware, which in turn led to their understanding of what they contribute those around them. I also really enjoyed supervising and training both graduate students and emerging professionals in their leadership development. I was known for providing guidance and encouragement, but also known for the fact that I wasn’t one who gave the answers…I expected that answers would be provided and we would discuss how those answers helped to solve the issue at hand, or did not. I always believed that I needed to empower the individuals who worked for me, or the students whom I advised. So, in a way, I have been a coach from the beginning.
When I decided to the take the “plunge” and form my own business to put the talents and skills I had developed over the year to work in helping others, I was reminded of a quote from one of my favorite saints, Teresa of Calcutta, also known to many around the world as Mother Teresa, before she died.
“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.”
As a coach, I aim to be the stone cast across the waters to create ripples that shed light on the obstacles my clients are facing that are getting in the way of achieving what they would like to accomplish both personally and professionally. My ability to create ripples equates to the client’s contributions in shaping our world. If I can be one small part of this incredible journey for my client, I am honored to do so.
