My hometown is Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. It has been a long road to Oklahoma! I was born in the Middle East and spent my childhood in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates and lived a year in Europe. I went to school in Pakistan and finally moved to the United States (New York) when I was ten. My father (an Engineer and an avid traveler) moved our family to the West Coast within the year. I stayed in California until moving to Oklahoma in 2000.
After college, I landed a much coveted job for the Campbell Soup Company in Sacramento. With Campbell Soup’s encouragement, I decided to pursue my Master’s in Human Resources Organization Development(MHROD).Campbell’s rewarded my achievement by promoting me to several management positions within Human Resources, ending with Manager – Training and Employee Development. I was responsible for all plant activities that involve training, employee development. I also developed the model for high performance work teams at the Campbell Soup Company, Sacramento. This model was used at many of the unionized plants in the United States.
I have now worked for large and small organizations all over California & Oklahoma, including Hewlett Packard, AT&T, Sonic Corporation, Oklahoma State University, Oklahoma Center for Non-Profits, and DHS, as well as many other organizations & State Agencies.
I was a Muslim for 35 years and accepted Jesus Christ as my LORD & Savior in 2007. I am filled with hope & JOY because I was lost and now I’m found!
