Biljana Karamehmedovic, ND, DTM (or Dr. B. as friends and clients call her), is a personal wholistic transformation coach, author, speaker, and a true believer in elevated conversations and human potential.
Not speaking a word of English upon her arrival to the United States as a Bosnian war refugee, she set to learn fast and help the refugee community. Her newly minted interpreting skills carried her into the position of a professional foreign language interpreter less than a year later. Keen on teaching and mentoring, in 2012 Biljana started training interpreters in healthcare for their professional roles, as well as preparing them to obtain and maintain their national certifications.
Continuous personal and professional growth in the language access and personal development industry steered Biljana to Toastmasters in 2009, and her DTM (Distinguished Toastmaster) award holds its place among the dearest of achievements.
From trainer and personal coach to a writer, speaker, and facilitator, Dr. B. currently wears many hats. She thrives on empowering entrepreneurs and professionals with a heart-mindset to take the leap and with customized strategies to leap into the results they seek in all aspects of their lives.
Biljana’s diverse interests and educational background (ranging from engineering and pedagogy to a doctorate in Naturorthopathy, as well as certifications in Social-Emotional Learning, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, and other various sales, and business-related studies) shaped her into a comprehensive problem-solver, and holistically oriented guide to high achievers seeking the most efficient tools and support in turning their life challenges into permanent victories.
For keynotes, presentations, classes, and workshops, Biljana covers the range of emotional and performance-based management and leadership related topics.
