Samara spoke at a recent SDG&E Mastering Business Growth program and she was WONDERFUL. The talk was very informative and her presentation style is very inviting and pleasant. I highly recommend Samara's talk about Diversity in the Workplace.

I had the privilege of working closely with Samara in a couple of areas and her guidance and expertise proved to be invaluable to the organization, and to me, personally.
My decision to ask Samara to be my coach was immediate. I trusted Samara as an expert in her field and as someone I knew would guide me with kindness and without judgment.
A primary focus of our coaching was on my growth as an inclusive leader, especially since I manage an international team who come from many different cultural contexts. However, we also focused on my career and personal development more broadly. My work with Samara transformed me as a leader and as an ally. I am so much more knowledgeable on DEI principles and best practices, and I've been able to channel my learnings into action throughout every aspect of my job (and personal life).
I'm deeply grateful for Samara's coaching, which has helped me grow both professionally and personally in so many ways!
