ABOUT

Since 2017, I’ve coached professionals from tech startups to large multinational corporations. I love guiding people to see new perspectives, achieve aspirational goals, and connect with their confident, badass self to design a fulfilling life. My coaching philosophy is a blend of Co-active Coaching, mindfulness, and growth mindset frameworks.


I’ve also been working with startups since 2015, and I’ve experienced a wide spectrum from the corporate world to higher education. As Devex’s People Team Lead, a globally distributed media platform, I lead organizational development and talent management strategies. I work closely with our leadership team as well as all team members to attract top talent to join our team and align our mission, vision, goals, and values to thrive as an organization.


Why do I do this work? Because team members are the heart of any organization and the secret sauce to a thriving company. I strive to bring empathy, belonging, authenticity, self-awareness, laughter, and compassion to every interaction. I bring this to my coaching business, too. 

 

CULTIVATING CULTURE AT DEVEX

Highlighted Work from a Remote Media Platform

At Devex, an online media platform, we have offices in DC, Barcelona, Manila, and 17% of our team is entirely remote (though we're fully remote right now). Our teams consist of news, creative, analytics, product development, marketing, sales, and more. As the People Team Lead, I'm responsible for the end-to-end employee lifecycle: recruitment, onboarding, development, retention, and offboarding. I collaborate with all teams, from recruiting a fantastic new team member to equipping all teams with the skills and tools to do their best work (and love doing it!).

ENGLISH COMMUNICATIONS COACH

Highlighted work from Breathe Easy English

I founded Breathe Easy English (BEE) to help professionals make their voice heard, so they could speak confident English at work. Boldly lead a meeting. Awe their audience during a presentation. Connect with coworkers in daily conversation. Or land their dream job in English. Quickly, it turned in to career, leadership, and team coaching. Today, BEE has become part of Rachel Korb Coaching.

 

SCALING SPRINGBOARD

Highlighted Work from EdTech Startup in San Francisco

As the 3rd Sprinboarder to join Springboard in San Franciso (and 8th globally), I led and scaled the global Student Operations from 80 to 1000 active students. I worked closely with marketing, mentor operations, product, engineering, and curriculum dev. I also cultivated and nurtured Springboard's culture through leading retreats, team building activities, hiring, and onboarding, so that we could help professionals excellence in their careers through UX, Analytics, and Data Science bootcamps.

 

DEVELOPING INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS

Highlighted Work from San Francisco State University

I managed a pilot international summer program at SFSU, including marketing, admissions, program design, course offerings, professional development workshops, and cultural activities. I traveled globally for recruitment and to speak at conferences and study abroad fairs. During the summer season, I advised students, facilitated professional development workshops and cultural activities.
