Sylvia’s WHY that directs everything she thinks and does is “to contribute to a greater cause, make a difference, add value, and have an impact”. Her resounding HOW is by making sense out of things, synthesizing abundant information and taking complex or challenging situations and problems to develop systems, processes, visual aids, and learning opportunities so people can move forward in their lives. She helps people organize and make sense of the jumble that’s in their heads and then get into action to implement what they want to accomplish.
