Aleha's remarkable journey to founding Work Culture Works is a testament to resilience, determination, and the profound impact of turning adversity into a source of inspiration. Her path wasn't paved with ease; instead, it was marked by challenges that ultimately shaped her into a beacon of positive transformation for workplaces worldwide.

At the core of Work Culture Works lies Aleha's unwavering belief in creating better workplaces - a belief that sprouted from her own personal struggles. Her journey commenced during her tenure in the United States Air Force. What should have been a triumphant return from deployment took an unforeseen turn, plunging Aleha into the depths of a deeply traumatic experience - a survivor of sexual assault. The emotional scars ran deep, yet the response from her superiors lacked the empathy and support she so desperately needed.

Trapped in an environment rabid with toxicity, Aleha found herself teetering on the edge of despair. The pain she carried led her to contemplate ending her own life. Isolated and consumed by her struggles, she withdrew from her duties and the world around her, spending days confined to her bed. However, even in her darkest hour, a glimmer of hope emerged in the form of a compassionate colleague who recognized her silent pleas for help. His intervention not only pulled Aleha back from the precipice but also ignited a fire within her - an unwavering determination to rise above her circumstances and effect positive change.

Aleha's journey was one of unwavering perseverance and continuous growth. Armed with 21 years of military service and three Master's degrees, each specializing in I/O Psychology, she transitioned into civilian life with a singular goal: to foster safe work environments universally. In 2022, she embarked on her Doctorate in Leadership & Education in Healthcare at Nebraska Methodist College, with plans to graduate in 2025.

Today, Aleha's personal triumph over adversity infuses her work with unique insights and approaches. Her remarkable ability to uncover hidden organizational issues and offer effective solutions is a direct result of her own experiences navigating complex work environments. Work Culture Works isn't merely a consulting agency; it's a tangible manifestation of Aleha's journey - a journey that epitomizes resilience and an unyielding commitment to reshaping workplace cultures for the better.

Aleha's story serves as a powerful reminder that challenges can be transformative stepping stones to growth. From her tumultuous past to her thriving present, she embodies the belief that personal transformation can drive professional success. Her mission to cultivate healthier work environments isn't just a business objective; it's a profound calling stemming from her own struggles and the incredible strength she discovered within herself. Through Work Culture Works, Aleha is channeling her journey into a potent force for positive change, inspiring others to surmount obstacles and construct flourishing workplaces from the ashes of adversity.
