A little bit about Amanda
I will never forget the moment I realized I was on the wrong path. I was twenty-one in the first semester of my graduate degree, teeter-tottering between studying for an exam and working on deliverables for the 3 clients I was supporting. I remember calling a friend and saying “I’m on the wrong track, I don’t wake up excited anymore.” My friend gave me the best advice they had – “see it through, you’ve invested so much time, why quit now?”
In that moment I decided to let go of the voice inside me that said “Be brave and follow your intuition,” and instead listen to the voice that said “This is the only way to be successful.”
As a first-generation Lebanese-American, born and raised in Oklahoma by war refugees, I felt the pressure of perfection weigh on me daily. With my extended family still in Lebanon, the reality of privilege and opportunity kept me from entertaining a path that did not lead to a six-figure career and the ability to give back financially. My commitment to “success” taught me invaluable skills and trained my grit and resolve, but left me feeling empty and unfulfilled. Over time, this neglect of my internal voice led to health complications, relationship tension, and self-worth pains. During my career as a Fortune 500 Change Manager at one of the world’s largest consulting firms, I was promoted 3 times, received international recognition for my work, negotiated over 5 raises, and managed a team of all-stars, yet the voice inside of me only became louder with each step.
After 10 years, I finally left the career I knew was wrong for me all along. I finally followed my voice and took all sorts of wild, bold action, including signing up for the A Path That Fits Career Pathfinder Coaching Program. The rest is history. Today, I can truly say without a shadow of a doubt that I am on a path that is meant for me.
Career shifts take bravery. They take understanding. They take compassion. They take patience. These are all things I had to learn on my journey toward a life that sets my soul on fire. As a psychologist and a change manager, I am forever a student of the self. I feel a true and deep passion for supporting people who are committed to gifting the world their full potential and know that anything is possible. Today I work as a guide and friend to people who believe in the power of new beginnings. Asking “Who am I and what do I want to do with my time here?” is a courageous and bold question, and I am committed to supporting you as you answer that voice from within.
