Hi, I’m Gayle, Executive & Career Coach and Founder of Boost Up.

Since we are our stories, I am sharing mine.

After getting my MBA degree and graduating from ESSEC -Paris, I believed that I knew exactly what I wanted my career to look like.


I got into banking and started working in major cities such as Paris and London, then finally went back to work in my hometown, Beirut. Despite the fact that I used to work for long hours, I was focused and had a tunnel vision of what I wanted.


My main efforts were to maintain the life that I had designed for myself because at the time, I found my experience as a banker to be very enriching. I collaborated with top management, different departments, external stakeholders, as well as international organizations. I was working on diverse missions with different teams which allowed me to keep learning and growing. I even developed the first program dedicated to the financial empowerment of women in the Middle East, a project I am most proud of.


In the meantime, I fell in love, got married and had my first beautiful baby boy. That is when things started to shift and I started feeling that my job in banking was lacking meaning and purpose. I was becoming decreasingly happy at work.

This made me realize that many of my clients and co-workers were unsatisfied by the work/life they found themselves in and needed support in their career! I knew then that I was also one of them.


At this same moment, I was reaching a turning point in my work/life which made me reconsider my career objectives. I wanted to make a difference and find a job with a purpose, a purpose that would be whole heartedly mine, and that I would be passionate about. I wanted a job that would allow me to work on my own terms, with the flexibility I needed.



I was at a crossroad and had a difficult decision to make. After having spent so many years in banking, I thought I wouldn’t know how to do anything else. It literally felt like jumping off the roof! For a while, I kept on having the same recurrent dream (or nightmare), of going to my old workplace each morning.


After a lot of research, I found my calling: Career Coaching, a profession that perfectly responded to my aspirations. As soon as I had come to that realization, I resigned and completely shifted by enrolling to the coaching certification program.


I sometimes doubted my choices, but deep inside I knew that it was the best decision I had ever made. I made the leap, and finally regained control over my career and my life. I became a certified Coach, and an Accredited Member of the ICF.

  • Soon after, my husband and I welcomed our second handsome baby boy into our happy family. Today, I live in Luxembourg - a cosmopolitan city in the heart of Europe and my career fits my life perfectly. I have achieved the balance that I was seeking, and I feel so grateful.


    My mission is to help ambitious career-minded people connect with their better selves, reach their full potential, and achieve meaningful goals faster while having a balanced, happy, and productive life.


    My goal now, is to help you and other wonderful people do the same; take charge of your career and redesign it your way to achieve the success you have always sought!


    I deeply believe in the power of coaching because I have witnessed the great outcomes it has had on me, my clients, as well as other peer coaches.


    So what are you waiting for? Take charge of your life and redesign your new career now!
