A migrated Nigerian- Canadian, Anita understands the role identity plays in career advancement (or its limitation), feeling confident in one’s values while navigating career transition and other related areas such as personal branding and networking. All things she struggled with on arrival to Canada. But she spent years in research, figured out the codes and have successfully applied same to her career and that of others.

Prior to arriving Canada, Anita worked with as a Diplomat with the Nigerian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, where she specialized in foreign policy, bilateral and multilateral agreements, conflict resolution and negotiations, with key focus on the Asia-Pacific region, serving as the home officer for political and economic desks within that region.
Before joining government, Anita had worked in the private sector, her experience spanning over operational and administrative management, sales, business development, project management and fostering international partnerships for business growth. Having worked in a startup, Anita grew the company’s bottom line by 80% in three years, reduced accrued debt down to less than 10% and established strategic vision, plans and operationalization of such plans.
On arrival to Canada, Anita wasted no time, taking all the years of experience gathered, matching it with extensive research to understand the Canadian system and establish her own career. She committed to helping others along the way, setting the foundation for her role as a Coach and Mentor. Being a wife and mom added a layer of challenge which Anita sought to also overcome by learning and putting in place systems and structures for high productivity. Leveraging her relationship building skills, and ability to relate with people of diverse ethnic background, Anita has an extensive relationship pool which she leverages for her clients as well.
In no time, Anita was well established in Canada, having worked in retail, non-profit, industry association and within provincial government where she has worked (and continues to) with various Senior Executives as a policy, planning and strategy expert. Anita has also gone on to become an established author, an entrepreneur and a leader within the faith-based and Nigerian community.
Now, Anita is fully committed to helping others navigate this journey, accelerate their transition process and advance in their careers without all the overwhelm, hence, the birthing of Advanced and Fulfilled Coaching. That is not all, she also mentors high-achieving women through LadiesArise- a platform committed to building and equipping women personally and professionally. She is also founder of loudsilences.org, an educative and awareness blog where she talks about sexual violence, mental health and dangers on the culture of silence.
