BIO

Georgina is a consultant, coach, public speaker and social entrepreneur who combines over a decade of corporate, start-up, and adventure experience. Her career spans from founding start-ups to leading cross-functional teams and clients in Fortune 500 companies globally. She also worked in real estate development, creating new business plans, raising venture capital, and directing acquisition activity.

As an accomplished mountaineer, climbing 6 of the 7 highest peaks on each continent, including Mt. Everest twice, she is fascinated by the power of human potential. She works with clients to help bring conscious and subconscious roadblocks to the surface in order to help them reach their dreams, goals, and objectives in their business and life.

Georgina’s expertise includes leadership development, executive coaching, transformational change initiatives (technology/process/culture), organizational alignment, startups (creation, growth, fundraising), and gender equity in the workplace.  Her advice and compelling stories have been featured in magazines, websites and podcasts including Intel iQ, Yahoo Travel, Glamour Magazine, Huffington Post, Women’s Health Magazine, Natural Health, People en Español, Latina Magazine, Positive Luxury, Climbing.com, American Latino TV, Univision-KMEX, SheExplores Podcast and On She Goes Podcast.

She holds an MBA from Loyola Marymount University and is a graduate of the The Nasdaq Entrepreneurial Center Milestone Maker Program in San Francisco. 

In her free time, Georgina is an avid traveler, reiki practitioner and overall adventurer. She is currently in the process of completing the Explorer’s Grand Slam, a feat consisting of climbing the highest peak on each continent (8 Peaks) and skiing the last degree of the North and South Pole. Less than 15 women globally have completed this challenge, and she has only 3 expeditions remaining to complete it. Her project raises awareness around gender-based violence and climate change.

What led you into coaching?

In my own pursuit of discovering my full human potential in life and business, I’ve come to realize that I love helping other people do the same. I truly believe each of us has a gift to share with the world and there is beauty in discovering what that is and how to develop it fully. When we bring our full potential to our lives, work, communities and beyond, everyone is enriched.

After nearly a decade of consulting where I worked with clients to develop high performance teams, implement transformational change initiatives, create engaging company cultures and build strategic alignment in organizations, I made a shift to focus on coaching and leadership development. I did so because wanted to have time and space to work with individuals more closely to help them reach their goals and objectives and discover that power within to get there. 

I find it extremely rewarding to help clients reach their desired outcomes and, more importantly, discover their inner power to go after anything they want in life. 

What unique skills/approach do you bring to coaching?

When working with clients, I bring together over a decade of corporate, start-up, and adventure experience, which creates a unique approach to business solutions and personal challenges.

We all have to start where we are to get to where we want to go. We cannot be limited to what is possible due to our starting point.

I live this belief. Ten years ago, I started my personal adventure challenge of completing the Explorer Grand Slam, a feat consisting of climbing the highest peak on each continent (8 Peaks) and skiing the last degree of the North and South Pole. When I began, I literally could not run a mile or ski. Had I let my starting point hold me back, I would have been frozen by it and never have taken that first step to run my first mile or hike my first trail or ski my first hill.  Once I complete it, I will be one of only 15 women in the world to do so. Anything is possible with determination, commitment, passion, and focus. I try to share this with clients and help remove limited thinking when approaching challenges in work and life.

I also bring solutions that integrate general well-being. While training for endurance sports, one quickly realizes that training our minds is equally, if not more important than training our bodies. So in anything we do, our mind, body and spirit, must be balance to achieve the best possible results and with more happiness in the process.

Lastly, in my experience as an entrepreneur, I’ve learned that less is more and that it’s ok to fail, but to fail fast, learn and adapt. The entrepreneurial mindset is excellent for breaking into new territory, driving organizational innovation, and pushing for new limits personally and professionally.
