A contagiously optimistic coach, trainer, and speaker, Helen has had advanced countless career paths for individuals at the United Nations, as well as in the nonprofit and private sectors. She was the HR Strategic Partner at United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and formerly Director of Talent Management at the International Rescue Committee (IRC). Helen has also worked for UNICEF, the United Nations, the World Wildlife Fund for Nature (WWF) and, in the private sector, for Reuters and Sotheby’s.
Helen has lived and traveled internationally — from London to Lome, Oslo to Ouagadougou, Niamey to New York.
Fluent in French, she is a graduate of Smith College, hold a Masters in Human Resources Management, and is currently pursuing a Doctorate in Adult Learning at Columbia University.
Helen is an accredited and certified Coach and a licensed Career Counsellor. Most importantly, when she is not immersed in coaching and training, you might find me engaged in either of her two favorite pastimes: running along the Hudson River or indulging in a hot chocolate.
