I want to share my practical experience and help people accelerate the development of their businesses. Raised in Istanbul, Turkey and college educated in the U.S., I lived and worked in Istanbul, Boston, Frankfurt, and London prior to returning to the States with my family. My professional training is in banking and finance. I held business origination, relationship management, and financial planning positions in multinational companies, medium sized businesses, and also worked independently as a consultant. In 2013, I founded my professional organizing business as a solopreneur. I enjoy meeting people from different walks of life and finding common ground.
