Sometimes we choose to reinvent ourselves and sometimes reinvention is forced on us due to a career setback, a layoff, or something unexpected. No matter what brings you to the doorstep of reinvention, you have an opportunity to decide what your next chapter looks like. You deserve to decide what success is for you and pursue it proudly!
For me, my version of success didn't always look like everyone else's. I wanted things people said made no sense or couldn't be achieved, or wouldn't make as much money. It didn't matter though, I believed I could live my life and enjoy a career that makes me happy, not everyone else. So I left one corporate career where I sold commercial refrigeration and reinvented myself into an educator, speaker, and coach. I taught math at inner city and private schools. I taught entrepreneurship around the world. I joined the faculty at the University of Pennsylvania. Along the way, I was recruited by corporate America to serve as an educator of intrapreneurship and an executive coach of global leaders.
Four years later, I was part of the largest lay off in IBM's history and it was time to reinvent myself again. This time, I decided I wanted to build a school to inspire, empower, and guide others on their own reinvention.
As Warren Bennis, a pioneer in leadership studies, used to say, "you are the author of your life" and I want to help people write their own unique chapters.
The School of Reinvention is where you go to clearly define where you want to go, map out a strategy, and carry out an action plan to get there.
It is my mission to empower you with the programs, courses, and coaching to help you write the next chapter of your life on your terms!

Ioana, PhD, Senior Marketing Professional, Team Leader, Business Coach
I teach people who want to reinvent themselves by unleashing them to define and pursue their unique version of success.
I have gone through multiple reinventions going from a finance degree to a job in strategic marketing to national account sales to masters in psychology to an M.B.A. to educational consultant to middle school teacher to executive coach, international speaker, and now Ivy League faculty.
The secret to my process lies at the powerful intersection of teaching, entrepreneurship, psychology, neuroscience, and coaching.
