“As a professional of color that works in predominately white spaces, I found that having someone help me name what I experience (ex: imposter syndrome, colonization, structural racism) has been extremely beneficial as part of my self-care and resiliency. Joel helped guide the conversation and allowed me to answer questions about my own experiences that helped me gain clarity about my priorities and goals. Joel held me accountable to the personal and professional goals I set for myself during our time together and it propelled me prioritize professional goals I’ve been putting off for so long.”
