Founder of Woman Empowered!

A little about me. I was born in Bangladesh to the 2-roomed, leaking-tin-roof home of my loving grandparents. Their unconditional love is the lens through which I view the world. Later, I was raised in Zimbabwe where I was introduced to the magnificence of nature and global perspective. After earning an undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering, I spent 8 years scrapping my own way through 2 graduate degrees in NYC. The steepness of my learning curve matched the NYC skyline. I now live in the great state of Pennsylvania with my husband, Chris Hardy, & our 2 children.


My confidence is built on humbling battlefields, and my perspective is shaped by my global upbringing. The battles I have fought have sometimes brought me to my knees, but it is from that vantage point that I discovered my winning toolset: the empowered A-F mindset! 


When you know who you are - and you know where you want to go - the indomitable force of your nature shines your way forward. I would love to show you how to ignite the power of your own indomitable sense of self - and win it, my friend!

When I was 21, I found myself in New York City, with less than $400 in my pocket, no address, no job, alone and unprepared for a city that shows little mercy. 8 years later, I had earned an MBA, and a Ph.D. and survived some tough but character-building life lessons that led to my own empowering journey. (Yes, there were many days when lunch money was not an option. Yes, I looked in admiration at successful women and thought, "I wonder how they got there? Will I ever make it?" Yes, I broke down in tears of discouragement on many an evening - and I laugh-cried at myself for all the trouble I found myself in; like the day I broke one heel during a job interview, right after I almost got run over by a NYC yellow cab. But the empowerment of being able to withstand, to rise to the occasion, and to believe in myself after every fall, is what pushed me forward.)

Even after I had managed to stand on my own feet, one of the hardest things I did was stand up to people whose love and approval I had used as a measure of my worth. But once I understood that I could not be empowered while also needing the approval of others (people I love, or people I do not like), it set me straight on my road to personal empowerment. I share some of these stories in my courses/ coaching program to showcase the powerful and transformative tenets of the empowered mindset & empowered professional branding - and to cheer you on your own path to your empowerment.

I am an educator and mentor - with almost 20 years of experience teaching at the college level and in leading women in STEM initiatives. I am passionate about the empowerment of women (& kids). With my years of experience in the empowerment of women, I have created 2 signature empowerment programs with, structured, distilled, research-based, and transformative modules, designed to propel a woman to be "ready, set woman empowered!"
