Alejandra Hernandez '14 is the founder of EmpowHer Change and Co-founder of Opti Well-Being Solutions. At 19 years old, she felt sick to her stomach as she negotiated her salary and was thrilled when she successfully negotiated an increase of $2,500! Now, as a career coach, she helps her clients increase their salaries by $10,000 - $35,000! She kept seeing all her clients come in with similar fears and making the same mistakes. Her approach in coaching is to reflect the famous quote “Give a Man a Fish, and You Feed Him for a Day. Teach a Man To Fish, and You Feed Him for a Lifetime.” She teaches her clients "how to fish" so that they can continue to multiply their income in the years to come. Her coaching focuses on helping her clients rebuild confidence, get clear about their life + career goals, and overcome imposter syndrome so that they can lead a fulfilling life. She intersects her passion for career coaching, leadership development, and health to bring a holistic approach to helping people thrive in the workplace.
