Born and raised in Paris, France, Selima moved to New York City in 1998 to pursue a career in finance. After receiving her MBA from Baruch College, CUNY, she worked for fifteen years as a trader at investment banks and hedge funds, including Société Générale, SAC Capital Advisors, and Point 72. She liked her work. It demanded versatility and near-constant adaptability. It rewarded curiosity and strategic thinking. And, as a woman in the arena of finance, it taught her invaluable lessons in perseverance, composure, and resilience.
Human nature had always fascinated her: why we thrive and why we stumble or stall; how we overcome life’s challenges; how we grow. By the end of her finance career, she came to realize that questions like these had always been her underlying interest and being able to answer them—a passion. As a coach today, she is fully committed to helping her clients navigate their lives’ challenges, figure out their goals clearly, and realize their own visions of success.
Selima is a Life Transition and an Executive & Leadership Coach with an expertise in finance. She is a Certified Professional Coach from IPEC, an Energy Leadership Index Master Practitioner and an ICF member. She has been a Reiki Master for ten years and is currently doing a training program in music therapy.
