About Me

Hi, I am Kurly. I am a certified transformative life coach, a career coach, a human capital consultant, a writer, a wife and a mom.

Throughout more than a decade of corporate life, which I am very grateful for, I have realised one very important life lesson. I may have accomplished great things that I never imagined to do and reached a point of personal career success, but there is one ultimate dream, that although pushed back to the bottom, is still alive in my heart. Your dream never dies, unless you let it die with you. It took me a while to take that dream out embrace it, and nurture it. And my mission is to help you do the same for your organization or for yourself, whether it is getting that promotion you’ve always wanted, venturing into business, improving your team dynamics, meeting your business goals or being a full-time homemaker.

I play multiple roles, but they all point to the same thing. I journey with people in discovering their best selves, facing fears, designing their paths and taking mindful steps towards their ultimate goals and dreams. I am here to transform lives. I am here to help you build bridges from where you are to where you truly want to be.

Why the dragonfly?

In almost every part of the world, the Dragonfly symbolizes change, transformation, adaptability, and self-realization.

The change that is often referred to has its source in mental and emotional maturity and understanding the deeper meaning of life.  The Dragonfly’s scurrying flight across water represents an act of going beyond what’s on the surface and looking into the deeper implications and aspects of life.  The Dragonfly moves with elegance and grace.  The Dragonfly is iridescent both on its wings and body.  Iridescence shows itself in different colors depending on the angle and how the light falls on it. The magical property of iridescence is also associated with the discovery of one’s own abilities by unmasking the real self and removing the doubts one casts on his/her own sense of identity.

The Dragonfly normally lives most of its life as a nymph or an immature. It flies only for a fraction of its life.  This symbolizes and exemplifies the virtue of living in the moment and living life to the fullest. By living in the moment you are aware of who you are, where you are, what you are doing, what you want, what you don’t, and to make informed choices on a moment-to-moment basis.  The eyes of the Dragonfly symbolize the uninhibited vision of the mind and the ability to see beyond the limitations of the human self.  Dragonfly’s can be a symbol of self that comes with maturity. They can symbolize going past self-created illusions that limit our growth and ability to change.

The Dragonfly has been a symbol of happiness, new beginnings and change for many centuries.  The Dragonfly means hope, change, and love.

Why did I choose to become a coach?

When I left my job, I was clear that I want to get into a people development career. I just wasn’t sure exactly what or how. I attended a seminar on career shifting and it made me realize that this is actually a big leap I am making, and that there is a significant (skill / experience) gap to fill. But because this is what I want and what I am passionate about, I gave it a go. I took several online and face-to-face courses to build my skills, and the biggest one I invested on (time and money) is my coaching certification. I went to the class wanting to learn and build my skill, but I got so much more than that. I met people who were so clear with their PURPOSE, who worked not just for money, but for something bigger than themselves. With that experience, I reconnected with my purpose. I declined a very good job offer because it didn’t align with my purpose and goal. Later on, I got coached by no less than our trainer and mentor. Slowly, all the pieces fell into place and it became clear to me. Coaching is not just a career I want to build, or a credential to add to my resume. Coaching is a way for me to make a difference. I’ve always believed in people’s potential. In my own ways, I’ve always wanted to help people learn and grow. Even with small projects I worked on, I tried to make people believe in themselves and find something special in themselves. I love learning and I equally love sharing what I learn and know. I find joy in conducting trainings and workshops. Coaching is one of the most powerful ways I am able to connect with people, make them feel loved, make them feel brave and worthy.
Coaching has changed my life. I know it can change yours too. 
This is why I am a coach.
