About us


As an Leadership& Resilience Coach and Motivational Speaker at Coach as a survivor LLC, I leverage my unique experience of been during 5 years a former International Hostage and CEO to help CEO's, Business Owners, and Entrepreneurs overcome challenges and thrive in their personal and professional lives. 

I have more than 35 years of experience in the oil and gas industry, where I led strategic planning, financial management, and led joint ventures with several International Partners through my leadership expertise in multicultural environments as a CFO and CEO of Citgo Petroleum and another top executive positions.

My coaching program, LPSG, is meticulously designed to cater to the unique needs of CEO' and Business Owners, taking out their unbreakable spirit and empowering their leadership capabilities, promoting growth in management performance, addressing intercommunication obstacles, enhancing employee engagement, resolving teamwork issues, and facilitating tailored one-on-one or group coaching sessions. 

I also facilitate CEO's and businesses in assessing and managing the risks involved in overseas business travel and relocation of staff as expatriates, drawing upon my extensive experience in handling expatriates and surviving a hostage situation. 

My mission is to help my clients find their unbreakable spirit and bounce back stronger from any adversity. 

I also share my inspiring story and insights as a public speaker and author, raising awareness and advocacy for the hostages community.

You can hire me to your Corporate Stages to speak to your employees and inspire them to become stronger and boost their resilience.

I am in a mission too in spreading my message to raise the awareness over the evil practices I faced on the so-called "Hostage Diplomacy" supporting families and working with all the foundations that  advocate too supporting the Hostage Community. 

I have my signature speech "form Captivity to freedom" that I share in all the stages possible to inspire an give message of hope , faith and to never give up under any circumstance and supporting this hostage community
