I am a Transformation Strategy Coach & Consultant, a Diversity & Inclusion Catalyst, a Hispanic advocate, and an international motivational speaker. I'm a possibility thinker and firm believer that nothing is impossible. My mission is to enable professionals to move from ordinary to extraordinary through meaningful transformation by expanding their potential, embrace their purpose, ignite their brand, and thrive through personal empowerment. My specialties include leadership development, diversity & inclusion, high-performing teamwork, purpose-driven culture mindset, resilient & agile behaviors, and personal brand development. With over 20 years of executive experience leading and coaching professionals, teams, and businesses into success for notable Fortune 500 companies, I understand the mindset, skillset, and behaviors required to reach your full potential and achieve success. Always attracted to unconventional challenges, I owe my accomplishments to being open to new opportunities, constantly moving out of my comfort zone. Throughout my journey, I have learned that being good at a job is not enough to achieve a successful and fulfilling career. It’s also essential to be aligned with your purpose.

Positive, Actionable Career Advice

My call with Ilhiana was very effective. After spending a short time describing my situation we moved into a dialogue where she offered advice and tactics that I could implement immediately. Her advice was clear and concise. Ilhiana is an effective coach and I strongly recommend that other WiseHer members use her expertise to positively impact their career.

Ilhiana was amazing. She allowed me to express myself and gave me actionable points on what I needed to do. I felt heard, i felt understood, I felt that she empathized with me. I left feeling powerful and a burden was lifted off my shoulder. That I would recommend Wiseher is not in doubt. Thank you Ilhiana you were kind, thoughtful and you also provided me with a clear map of next action points. I will do them and share the feedback with you.
