because the 3 steps of my process to make wise choices are linked to the 3 colors of traffic lights worldwide. Wouldn’t you agree that without usage of traffic lights, it would be mind-boggling for all drivers to maneuver through an intersection safely? To illustrate this, take a look at the picture below on the left to see what I saw in Moscow a few years ago. There were no stop lights at their intersections! Next, look at the traffic on the right that shows motorists driving responsibly through intersections. See the benefit when there is a *standard* for all motorists to use when passing through intersections?
Consider anytime you are making a choice as if you are at a virtual intersection on that journey of your life! After conducting research for many years on how people make choices, I chose to link the three steps to make choices to the green, yellow, and red traffic lights you see at at intersections.

With a foundation of a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration, my career spans over 25 years in the corporate world where I worked, primarily, in the telecom industry e.g. AT&T and Sprint. Throughout my career, I also worked at other Fortune 500 companies in information technology, financial services, and biotech as a seasoned trainer, facilitator, analyst, quality assurance manager, and consultant.
After an abusive experience happened in my life…which I now refer to as my ‘private 9/11’, I developed 1) a heightened awareness of the impact our internal and invisible choices have on others and 2) empathy for others suffering emotionally after being hurt by someone else’s ‘unethical’ a.k.a. selfish choice…whether it is a simple one-on-one incident or a large-scale tragedy affecting many people like terrorists’ attacks.
As a result of my own experience that is similar to the recently-publicized Silence Breakers and empathy for others, I focus on helping prevent disrespectful situations from happening to other people… primarily, women.
Wanting to better understand the underlying reasons why people make harmful choices, I began to study hundreds of resources. This led me to the work of Nobel laureate, Dr. Herbert Simon, whose studies revealed the underlying basis on which people make their choices and decisions: self-interest. While many good people make choices that are considerate of others, there are many people like criminals who make selfish choices that hurt 1000s of innocent victims.
Another problem surfaced in my research. Because of the wide variety of people in our world e.g. different cultures, generations, lifestyles, religions, my research highlighted the need to have a simple way that everyone can use to think of both self and others when making a choice or decision. After studying hundreds of resources on decision-making techniques, I used my business process improvement a.k.a. BPI skills acquired throughout my 25-year career to develop a simple process that everyone can use to make respectful choices and decisions.
I am a member of UNA-USA, SoCal Division, UN Women-LA Chapter, Rotary’s E-Club for World Peace, Mediators Beyond Borders-LA, Southern California Mediators Assn, Women’s Federation for World Peace, Women’s Prosperity Network, Professional Writer’s Alliance, and affiliated with the Violence Prevention Coalition-Greater Los Angeles and Long Beach Human Trafficking Task Force.
I have held many leadership positions in community service organizations, served in an elected position as a councilwoman and have also served on the board of OC-SAPN, Orange County Substance Abuse Prevention Network.
I partner with socially conscious activists and organizations like Long Beach Human Trafficking Task Force who are working together to promote respectfulness in their diverse communities and reduce social crimes such as human trafficking.
