Juanita is an Engineer and MBA turned Life and Leadership Coach. She is originally from Colombia and moved to the US almost a decade ago, first to New York to attend Business School at NYU Stern, and then to Indianapolis where she currently lives. For a decade, Juanita worked in Corporate Finance with multinational companies in Consumer Products, Retail and Tech. She entered the world of leadership via coaching: starting her own coaching business, training new coaches through Accomplishment Coaching, and more recently as the manager of content and experiences at Edge Mentoring. In her coaching business, Jump Coaching, Juanita works with multicultural, kind and soulful business creators through individual and group coaching. She offers honest and vulnerable conversations that support them in connecting with themselves, their fears and desires, so that they get to fully express who they are and bring it to their organizations, their communities, their relationships and their lives. Juanita coaches both in English and Spanish which allows her to support a wider range of leaders across the continent and generate the ripples of impact she is committed to creating.
