I am a Growth Catalyst and founder of the Growth Catalysts movement

With a degree in Compuer sciences, I am a Business intellligence (BI) expert with over 7 years of experience. An end-to-end resource with an over-all perspective which ensures a holistic delivery of BI solutions.

I am a people-person, taking a people-first attitude, with over 10 years experience in leadership, people management and personal development.


Growth Catalysts' main focus is helping people who have experienced and recovered, or, are still recovering from mental illnesses. We support them to get help from qualified proffessionals and we function as a support system as they rebuild their lives.

We are aware that a background with mental illness can limit most people, due to the trauma and tabu associated with mental illnesses - meaning that people with great potential never reach their full potential in society.


I grew up surrounded by adults with poor mental-health, and who were unfortunate enough to receive very little, or no help to enable healing.

Therefore, I have spent most of my private life researching mental health and mentoring and coaching young-adults and adults who have been affected by mental illnesses during the course of their lives.


I believe mentoring, accompanied with systematic, structured support systems, can save lives and help direct energy into empowering endeavors that can add value in society.


Born in Kenya, I have travelled in Kenya, around Africa and Europe and had the privilege to live in both Kenya and the United Kingdom. Currently, I live in Sweden, with dreams of being able to split my year between Sweden and Kenya.


An avid reader, an enthusiastic traveller, a writer of fiction, a lover of hats, a cat person and much much more.


I am available for:


  •  Group workshops, seminars, lectures etc
  • Out-reach initiatives that create awareness regarding mental health issues
  • One-on-one mentoring and coaching-sessions


I focus on topics relating to but not limited to:


  1. Self-development including setting of goals
  2. Effective execution of desired goals
  3. Self-Leadership including how to keep yourself accountable and motivated
  4. People management including how your boss can be your best mentor
  5. Empowerment from dependence to inter-dependence
  6. Personal Growth
  7. Healing from trauma if that is what is keeping you stagnating

My values and principles are based on the 6 words below.

The 6 words in their turn, form my one word which is SHAMAR.

SHAMAR is a Hebrew word meaning:

  • to keep
  • to guard
  • to observe
  • to give heed
  • to watch over
  • to protect



Which I interpret to mean that we should be of service to others.

As we are of service to ourselves.
