Inspired by the power of the 12.14 Foundation’s ARC program, Raiza became certified in Positive Psychology and is now part of the ARC leadership team. Raiza combines her own lived experience and training in various leadership and coaching disciplines to help her others live fully engaged, intentional lives that have meaning and wellbeing. With more than 20 years experience in leadership in the Info Technology field, mentoring and teaching, Raiza works with individuals who desire to turn adversity into triumph and challenges into empowerment.
