There is a big difference between achievement and fulfillment. As a recovering hyper-achiever, I can tell you that this self-sabotaging belief no longer serves me, and likely never did.

Now I chase what brings me energy and creates fulfillment in my life for both me and my family, offering a deeper perspective and sense of purpose. The rewards are substantial and of no comparison. 

With over fifteen years of recognized management consulting and leadership experience, I decided to ‘slow my row’ to get clear on what living and working well meant for me. This included honoring my body and my boundaries and redefining my own personal definition of success.

Motivated by autonomy, confidently curious, and energized by unearthing one’s greatest potential to better serve the world, Wander was born.

Leadership shouldn’t be reserved for the workplace. It’s needed everywhere. We raise the village.
