Hi! I’m Jacqui
London-based but originally from New York, I come from a vibrant blend of Afghan, Moroccan and Polish heritage. My multicultural background has inspired my deep rooted appreciation for working across cultures, and helps me to step into the dynamics of difference to surface where it can fuel or inhibit real growth.
What forced my immigrant parents and grandparents to leave everything and start anew instilled a determined spirit in me. As a child, I used sociodramatic play to solve problems. As an adult, I continue to apply genuine curiosity and creativity in my work with clients - a proven driver of innovative problem-solving amongst high performing teams.
Throughout my work I apply these skills and beliefs around authenticity, tenacity and self-awareness to help individuals, teams and organisations to take the relational risks with others and themselves to create the real value they seek.
I bring with me over 16 years of coaching, consulting and socratic advisory in Financial & Professional Services, underpinned by a number of accreditations:
Executive Coach (Trained through Tavistock Consulting) - Senior Practitioner - (EMCC) European Mentoring & Coaching Council
Analytic-Network Coach - International Coach Federation (ICF)
Systemic Team Coach (AoEC)
BA Psychology & Pre-Med - Emory University
MSc Organisational and Social Psychology (cum laude) London school of Economics
Post-graduate diploma in Psychological Studies - Counselling Psychology and Psychotherapy - Middlesex University
Dynamics of Consulting (CFAR)
I have lived, worked and trained across the US, UK, Europe, Southern Africa and Australia.
When I’m not working, I chase the sunshine, geek out on podcasts, enjoy HIIT and yoga and playing with my two young children.
