THEIR DREAM CAREER AND MEANINGFUL SUCCESS
In over 40 peer-reviewed, scientific articles, policy reports and book chapters, she shares the message that health goes beyond the biological and includes meaningful work and life circumstances. Many of these derive from her doctoral research in the social epidemiology of obesity in women in developing countries, with Professor Sir Michael Marmot at UCL, as well as her work with the UN Strategy on Disaster Risk Reduction with Professor Virginia Murray.
For over two decades, Amina has engaged in the philosophy, psychology and practice of high performance and wellbeing, cultivating a unique blend of deep compassion and sharp intelligence to serve her clients. As a child, her nickname was "Mother Teresa" which she objected to on the basis of her preference for a decent salary. Her work is devoted to providing teaching and transformational coaching to doctors, professionals and anyone who wants to fulfil their true potential and make a difference. Her greatest joy is in seeing bright women and men of heart spread their wings and soar as they create the professional and personal success they desire. She specialises in career transition, work-life balance, addressing imposter syndrome, improving financial remuneration and connecting with deep motivation.
You will find her weekly blog and videos freely available. They aim to provide an initial footing and a little wisdom for navigating the complex 21st Century career with all it brings in terms of possibilities, challenge and creativity but also meaningful work, joy and deep connection.
Respected by industry colleagues as an intuitive strategist, Amina offers depth and breadth of experience succeeding in a highly competitive service profession. Her career evolved from a Cambridge graduated medical doctor in high pressured hospitals to global health policy expert at intergovernmental level working on the United Nations sustainable development agenda 2015 – 2030. Having been uprooted from her native country as a teenager due to civil war, she is well aware of the real challenges of a fast changing world but also the potential opportunities that lie within the uncertainty. With this mindset, she travelled to six continents and and became fluent in four languages while contributing to local, national and international health impact.
