What 3 words would Angelica use to describe Genius Within?
Authentic, Empowering, Genuine
What is Angelica’s favourite way to relax and unwind after a day’s work?
Angelica loves reading books (fiction), she can get completely lost in a book, but with working, mummying, daughtering, sistering and everything else, she does not always have the time. So you will likely find Angelica enjoying an evening of dinner, drinks and laughter with family and friends or watching some really trash tv!
What is Angelica’s Inner Genius?
Putting the Human into HR! Angelica is approachable so that employees, associates and clients feel psychologically safe in their place of work and able to discuss anything, good and bad. Life happens to us all!
