Before embarking on a career devoted to training and consulting, Gege was active in line functions when she worked full time for companies like Levi Strauss & Co., Motivation Asia, and De La Salle University.

Her competencies also include public speaking, something she has enjoyed since her early career days at Levi Strauss and company where she presented products and ideas to Filipino and foreign audiences. She further honed her public speaking skills as her career evolved to include teaching, training, and consulting.

Of all her activities, she enjoys training the most because not only does she help others learn, she herself also gets to indulge in a lifelong process of learning. She believes that life is enriched when we learn something new every day. In every workshop, she hopes to help her learners develop skills, attitudes, and confidence to enable them to go the next step higher in their career and their personal lives.
