Meet Kafi


The short version…

Hi, I’m Kafi.

I was born and raised in London and now live in Atlanta.

I’m known for my work as a top success coach, mentor and trusted advisor.

I love facilitating fun workshops and transformational experiences around the world that help and high-performers create balance BEFORE they burnout.  I have been there and back it’s not fun; therefore, I do what I do so you can learn from my mistakes.

After more than 25 years consulting with Fortune 500 companies (like The Coca Cola Company, Hewlett-Packard, Kimberly Clark & Shell Chemical Company), I became a workaholic and soon found myself on the verge of burnout.

Successful?  Yes… but I was stressed and a hot mess… that was until I decided to take matters into my own hands.

Fast forward a few years…I have turned my life around –happy, healthy and doing my best work.

Along the way, I’ve helped other high-performers get what they want, too.

It took a while, but I eventually found my flow again and now share my strategies and secret sauce with other high-performers.

I’m now back, even better than my former self, and love what I do.

With a passion for health and wellness, when I’m not in the office, I’m busy kicking someone’s arse at CycleBar (an indoor cycling studio) where I am known as the Cycle-Therapist!

Besides that, I love travelling the world and hanging out in beautiful locations.

And here is the official version…

Born and raised in London, Kafi and now live in Atlanta and is known for her work as a top success coach, mentor and trusted advisor.

She loves leading results-based workshops and transformational experiences around the world that help and high-performers create balance BEFORE they burnout.  She has been there, done that and got the T-shirt to prove it.

In addition to being an expert facilitator, Kafi supports clients through one-to-one coaching, group programs, intensive experiences and transformational retreats.

Kafi’s humble beginnings began in the council flats (aka public housing) of London.

After a 25-year career as an IT consulting manager, Kafi realized she had hit rock bottom; mentally, physically and emotionally drained from the daily demands, deadlines and dilemmas associated with being a high-performer.

All that, plus no time to dedicate to her relationship, family and friends meant life sucked!

Stressed and on the verge of being a hot mess…Kafi decided to take matters into her own hands! As she embraced her journey of healing, other women noticed the change and became interested.

Kafi started helping other women along the way and they too started achieving transformative results.

Now as the founder of the global brand Smart Women on Fire and creator of The Smart Women’s Leadership Lounge™ Kafi uniquely blends her expertise as a management consultant, certified fitness professional and work-life balance expert to help driven high-performers go from living a stress-filled life to creating a fulfilling and balanced life by design…all without sacrificing success!

Kafi has proudly co-authored three books:

  • 303 Solutions for Reaching Goals and Living Your Dreams,
  • 303 Solutions for Communicating Effectively and Getting Results
  • 303 Solution for Overcoming Challenges.

Most recently Kafi had a spotlight appearance at the She Means Business Female Founders’ Dinner hosted by Facebook and Civic Dinners.

Kafi is Chair of the Events Committee and an active Board Member of the British American Business Council of Georgia.
