Dr. Pamela Mena-Romano
Pamela Mena-Romano is a Whole Person Certified Coach, a scientist (Ph.D. in Medical Physics) with a background in Physics, and with years of experience teaching undergraduate students. She is also a certified Vinyasa Yoga Instructor, and fluent in Spanish (native), English and German.
Pamela has walked a long path of emotional recognition and validation, through several challenges while still being part of the very intellectually oriented scientific world. She not only experienced the typical difficulties of pursuing a Ph.D. and the afterwards post-doctoral research work, but also the even sometimes more challenging process, of being reborn in a different country with all that comes along with it (new culture, language, norms, social rules, etc).
As a high achiever, Pamela knows firsthand the meaning of the imposter syndrome, procrastination, perfectionism, self-sabotage, personal and professional crises, and all the consequences of not listening to the warning signs and pushing the personal limits to far. During these experiences Pamela began to include in her life creativity and a spiritual practice on a regular basis; singing, dancing, practicing yoga and meditating, among others. Pamela changed her perspective on life itself and the type of life she wanted to live; resulting in a richer, more grounded and happier way of living.
Pamela is a Coach that provides the safe space you need to become present with those emotions, that have overwhelmed you, that sometimes have taken control of your life, and that are holding you back from your personal and professional goals. She will accompany you in the process of recognizing those emotions and working with them, to be able to use those as connecting wires to a deeper self-understanding.
Pamela will challenge you to get out of your apparently comfort zone, which will help you get insight, new perspectives and a broader lens to see all the aspects that influence your life. As a result of this process, you will be able to decide what is it that you want in your life, and feel at peace with that decision; you will get the confidence to pursue your academic, scientific, business or personal goals and dreams; and ultimately, by giving the space to all the aspects of yourself to show up, you will feel balanced, at peace, and free.
If you feel that Pamela might be the right choice for you, please do not hesitate to contact her.
