Talent Development Manager, PowerUpWork.org
I believe everyone needs a support system. That’s my role in our community. I do this by bringing people and technology together to help us succeed. At the age of 19, I moved to Corpus Christi, Texas from Nairobi, Kenya on a golf scholarship to pursue a career in Computer Science. I have turned my love of automation and humanity into a fulfilling life, winning multiple awards for community engagement and managing talent development initiatives around the world. I have worked with the executive leadership teams of various organizations to drive their growth and delivery of learning and development services. I lead the development and delivery of technical, industry professional, learning, and leadership development for over 4,000 individuals annually. I’ve been featured on NBC, The Apprentice, Al Jazeera, BBC, Black Enterprise, Caller-Times Newspaper, Hungry Kids, Kenya Golf Guide, KRIS Channel 3, Texas Business Women, Jamhuri Magazine, Nation Newspaper, The Standard, People, AOL Jobs, Reaching Neighbors, and many other publications. I graduated college with highest honors, Summa Cum Laude from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi earning a Master’s Degree of Science in Educational Technology, along with a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science and a minor in Management of Information Systems. In addition to many awards, I have won an entrepreneur of the year award and was named “Corpus Christi Under 40, Person of the Year”. When I am not tapping away at my computer, I enjoy playing golf and spending time at the beach with my husband Denis, my three sons – Zaleik, Zamar, Zakai – and my dog Ziggy. My StrengthsFinder: 1.
