From her early days as a Human Resource Consultant working for Fortune 500 companies, to managing her own enterprise and writing a popular career advice column, she's become a favorite go-to people expert and friend.
Thousands have read her 10-year running newspaper column "Dear Workplace Sanity", which made its debut in 2006. In the column, she replied to over 300 letters selected from over 5,000 letters received from individuals seeking a bit of "sane" advice in the sometimes-insane world of work.
She answered questions from fresh graduates desperately seeking their first job opportunity, to retiring professionals stuck at a critical life crossroad. Every piece of advice was written with Rahila's professional experience and perspective of Human Resources and Management Consulting, coupled with her compassionate, yet scientific, approach taken from her background in Psychology and Neuroscience.
Rahila was born in Los Angeles, California to immigrant parents who left Pakistan in the 1960s in search of a more fulfilling life. Rahila graduated from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) with a major in Biochemistry and minor in Psychobiology. She also holds a Masters in Neuroleadership from the Middlesex University (UK).
Rahila is a sought-after consultant, corporate trainer, and executive coach. Each year she speaks and delivers workshops at numerous events, companies, organizations and schools on topics ranging from Careers, Entrepreneurship and Human Resources, to topics addressing the Neuroscience of Behavior.
