From Author to Mediator

While trying to climb the corporate ladder, Aria decided to write about her personal journey - the rewards and challenges of co-parenting, childhood bullying, narcissistic relationships, and being an ambitious single mom.

However, she couldn't ignore the fact that she continued to have negative, toxic experiences from one workplace to the next, including bullying, insecure managers, microaggressions, and retaliation.

From there, Aria integrated her writing of personal family experiences with professional ones and decided to explore a mediation career in the legal industry. She also transformed her disappointment from the couple of bad workplace apples to building strategies for companies in the effort to value their employees.
