who we are

Cristina Patrascu

Founder & Coach

Hello dear reader! If you reached this page probably you’re a bit curious about who we are and how we can help you.

I come from Bucharest, Romania where I lived for the first 30 years of my life before moving to UK. I always had an interest in the power of the words and the dynamic of human interaction which translated into a degree in Communications and Public Relations and another one in Arabic and French languages and civilisations.

As a professional I’ve expanded my skills in top international companies with a multicultural background where I discovered the importance of coaching and mentoring for personal development.

For more than 10 years I have been helping companies to improve their processes and results. During this journey the thing that brought me most joy was the help I could provide to individuals’ evolution, personally and professionally, concentrating on their potential.

I believe learning is a never-ending process that doesn’t stop once you finish school. So, shifting the focus from business projects to people, I’m keen to support adults grow – the same way I did – by leveraging the knowledge and the experience I accumulated.

Interested? I’m looking forward to hearing your story and working with you!

Sabine Smida

Founder & Coach

Hi, I’m Sabine! Let me tell you a little bit about myself: I am from Munich, grew up and studied there at the Ludwig Maximilium University. I have a master’s degree in Chinese studies, Business and Intercultural Communications.

I started my professional career in London at an international consulting firm. During this time I travelled a lot, got to know many interesting people, overcame countless challenges and learned TONS. This is also where I met Cristina. Together, we started building an empowerment initiative for women in consulting. Slowly, I got the sense that my real purpose lies somewhere else. So, after 6 successful years where I had grown to a Senior Manager, I decided to leave it all behind and reinvent my life. Some called me crazy, but I knew it was the right decision.

I moved back to Germany and went on to find my calling. I focused on the things I love about life. First, Cristina and I founded the PinkJamLife Blog to continue the spirit of our women empowerment project within our personal networks. Check it out here! Second, I became a certified yoga teacher (200h). I have been teaching in my local yoga studio, but also in business and schools. Yoga seems to do magic for so many people… Try it out, if you haven’t yet! Last but not least, I started my training to become a professional coach, since I knew this was the kind of consulting that I can really help people with. I have seen how coaching processes can remove blocks that were there for years, reveal solutions to problems that seemed unsolvable, and change people’s lives. In 2020, I received my ICF-certified diploma in Systemic Coaching.

Now I am ready to help you change your life to the better!

Why we do
what we do

We know your struggle is real! Life is not all about rainbows and unicorns, and we have experienced this ourselves. The demands of the professional and personal lives are higher than ever. We understand what it means to feel stressed, insecure and overwhelmed. We know how hard it is to pursue your dreams amidst the constraints of day-2-day life. We get that, as women, the standards are different for us and wanting it all is freaking hard. That’s why we built PinkJamLife.

We want to support women like ourselves, women like YOU, in overcoming the challenges in life and in conquering the world…

…Starting with the world within you!
