HI, I'M USHA

THIS IS MY STORY

I went from a small town Trainee Accountant to Director in a prestigious audit firm and then left it all behind to pursue my passion and purpose.

Now, through my Executive and Leadership Development Coaching and Mentorship, I help ambitious individuals, like yourself, determined to create your own path to success while not allowing anything to hold you back. When you hit the peaks in your career, and stretch yourself further to scale your contribution far beyond just your own personal and professional success, is when you create influence and impact not just for yourself but for the company you work for, your family and for the community around you too.
I do this, because, when you win, everyone wins!

WHERE IT ALL BEGAN

Growing up, I always dreamed that I would retire at the age of 40. 

I had never imagined, though, that months before turning 40, I would actually be walking away from the high powered professional position as a Director in a Big-4 audit firm, to start afresh.

Amidst all of the shock and questions around me, I boldly stepped away from an exciting 16-year corporate career (that I loved), from a comfy monthly salary and from everything that was known and familiar... to begin the next part of my life's journey.

My professional journey began with my first (and only) job where I started as a Trainee Accountant after graduating. My career had all of the highs and lows of a high performing, male-dominated workplace, and I shattered setbacks, crushed challenges and conquered fears to enjoy a highly successful career which included qualifying as a Chartered Accountant (SA), many promotions along the way and spending my final 6 years in the firm as a Director.

PASSIONATE ABOUT LEADERSHIP AND WOMEN EMPOWERMENT

My journey in corporate followed three distinct stages which covered my progress from a newly appointed graduate all the way up to Director in the firm. The third stage is also where I prepared myself for the journey that would unfold post-corporate. 

Now I run my own business where I serve through my Coaching, Mentoring and Speaking with a special interest in leadership development and women empowerment. I am also a Non-Executive Director, Board Committee Member, Certified brain-based Coach, Accredited Contribution Compass Partner and part of the Leadership Team of the PSASA Virtual Chapter.
