I'm Paquetia (sounds like pakeytah).
My love language is planning and organization. My goal is autonomy and perpetual freedom. Freedom to manage time in whatever way works for me. I also want the same for you! Whether through one of my 1:1 experiences or my stationery products from Hayward & Love™, I can help you clarify your goals and declutter your schedule so you can fill it with things you love.
Disorder is chaos! Or at least that is how it feels for me. Despite what most people who know me personally believe, I am quintessentially lazy. My biggest flex is that I am the most misunderstood organizational addict. I believe that staying organized supports my secret goal of doing nothing. By managing the moving parts of my life, I can control what I choose to do (or not to do.) Autonomy of time is being able to spend it doing as much of what I want as possible. Even if that is staring at the ocean for hours. The plan makes it possible. I firmly believe in reducing the wasteful activities in my schedule to fill my time with things I love. As a result, I looked for ways to reveal where my time was spent or wasted. Daily planning feels oppressive, and that didn't work for me. But I needed to ensure my strategy kept me accountable, helped me see my development needs and accomplishments, and didn't negate my self-care splurges. Hayward & Love was born to create ease. To reveal the things that no longer work for you and permit you to stop doing them. To declutter your task list so you can focus on the essential activities. To make life an enjoyable journey. To give you the freedom to be lazy without fear that something didn't get done.
How do I support you?
I teach people how to create successful planning strategies. I do this in a couple of ways to ensure my clients achieve the best results.
I will walk you through a discovery process. A major obstacle in planning is biting off more than you can chew. Together, we will get clear about your WHY. We begin by identifying the big picture and plan buckets of work instead of trying to tackle the whole. Finally, we'll create a strategy that allows you to rinse, wash, and repeat your planning and development process. This includes building a comfortable routine, making time to review and learn from your experiences, and limiting distractions, so you actually accomplish the goal.
It takes more than a list of tasks to create a project plan, but once you have a plan in place, execution is essential. Remember, the plan is only the beginning. The rest is up to you.

I've grown my 20+ year professional career in Technology & Operations as a project management professional. I began my journey as an Administrative Assistant. It's important to mention that I'm a non-technical employee because that truth dismantles the perspective that you have to be a technical SME to thrive in a technical environment. I've held many roles in Technology, from Administrative Assistant to Asst. VP of Risk and Compliance. Today, I'm a Sr. IT Consultant, Certified Scrum Master, and Agile PM/BA.
Over the last five years, as a senior consultant, I've had the privilege of mentoring and coaching junior PMs and BAs in my corporate role. As they entered the organization, I guided them in their new roles and supported their development. As a Certified Career Development and Organizational Coach, I'm focused on unlocking the secrets of planning and effective organizational strategies. Often, women view planning through two lenses: a cute activity with stickers and fancy pens or a strenuous activity that is cumbersome and full of commitments that most don't have time to address. I believe there is a better way that allows you to optimize your effort and enjoy a cute pen or two.
I've had more than 125+ hours of practicum training through the Experts Coaching Academy in 2020 and several more dedicated coaching encounters.
It would be my pleasure to advocate for you as you take this next step in your journey.
