Personal Background

Carina believes that life really is like a box of chocolate. You never quite know what you are going to get. Carina describes herself as multi-colored, shaped by the diverse, glocal experience that she has had, growing up in Singapore and her experience working in multinational companies.

She believes in the power of self-care and invests time to do so, whether it is picking up a new skill or solo traveling to gain new perspectives or life experience. When she has some downtime from caring for her family or work, she also enjoys reading recipes, cooking up a storm and listening to vinyl records.

Coaching Style

Carina’s coaching style is empathetic, fun and sincere. She hopes to build a trusted space for her clients to learn, unlearn and be the change they want to be

Personal Philosophy

You have everything to gain and nothing to lose by trying.
