How would you define HX and why it is important to your life’s work?
HX represents, for me, the thinnest intersection where personal truth begets goal identification begets effective strategy. I have found this process relevant in both personal and professional development. My life’s work, both current and future, aligns my training as a social worker, experience as an attorney, and natural abilities as an empath to help people speak truth to the needs that underly their obstacles.
