Nadia is a successful executive coach, TedX, and motivational event speaker, mentor, and sponsor for underrepresented groups and young talents. Passionate about leadership, with Jeff Lakusta she created 99 Humans: a multimedia platform centered on humanizing leadership across industries.
Having coached and mentored hundreds of people from all walks of life, a pattern emerged: more often than not we go through our days on autopilot without truly savoring life, feeling grateful for what we have and on fire about our existence.
So I decided to create a movement, Spark Your Zeal, to radically evolve our attitudes, invigorate our spirits, and inspire and show people how to bring the fire back into their life and work and turn obstacles into the fuel that achieves a richer internal and external bottom line.
In Nadia, you will find an inspiring companion who will energize everyone surrounding her with her bright spirit and zeal. She has two daughters (Lavinia & Olimpia) and lives in Manhattan, New York with her life Partner Fabio.
