    Her career as a coach began after studying at CTI(CPCC) in 2013. At the time, she was a single mother, and it started as a double job while working for a company. However, as she coached many leaders and executives, she realized that organizational change would not happen if only the coach listened to the true voice of the client.

    She learned in the leadership program offered by CTI that a true leader is someone who can engage and nurture the relationship between themselves and the people around them. From there, she began her ORSC studies.(ORSCC) At the same time, she also got PCC.

    In 2017, she founded her own company "Co-leaders". She works as an external collaborator with executive coaches and systems coaches to help non-profits and remote teams that are working towards agile and teal organizations to become sustainable and self-sustaining.

    Experienced as a Medical Information Representative, sales strategy promotion department, and project leader of organization development at a European pharmaceutical company.
    During my 15 years at the company, I realized that relationships within the team/organization, the organizational culture, and the atmosphere had a big impact on business performance. In addition, as I learned about coaching, I became aware of the fact that environmental issues, which I had been interested in since childhood, are the result of my own consciousness. In order to share these experiences and realizations with as many people as possible, especially the next generation, I decided to start my own business, and established Heart of the Earth, Inc.

    The mission of the company is to create an organization where everyone can live freely and energetically, and to create a sustainable society and companies. I am challenging the next generation of managers and organizational managers through various forms of management, including co-management of my own company as well as CRR Global Japan Ltd., as manager of a company.
    In addition, I would like to contribute to society by using my abilities, so I have been working to spread the importance of the relationship system and the concept of ORSC to university students and medical professionals through the activities of the “Mushashugyo Program" and "Medical Communication Flat".
