Hello! My name is Christy Gharbo, and I am a VISUAL STRATEGIST and VISUAL THOUGHT PARTNER.
I work with organizations and individuals to navigate challenges and opportunities in their businesses and their lives. Using visual processes and tools, I help others see through the clutter, make sense of ideas and information, and uncover the possibilities.
How did I get here?
I have always been drawn to working visually. In college, my ability to visualize mathematical concepts and work through applications visually helped me earn my undergraduate degree in mathematics / secondary education. Then, in graduate school, I studied adult education and learned even more about the power of visuals in learning.
I took my Master’s Degree to the corporate world, where I designed, delivered, and directed enterprise-wide learning and development initiatives. As a frequent member of cross-functional project teams, and as the leader of a learning and development function, I gained invaluable experience in business processes, strategy and planning, project development and implementation, and facilitation.
Throughout this time, I was energized by infinite opportunities to incorporate visuals and visual thinking into my work. I became known for my visual style and my ability to synthesize large amounts of information, distill content down to its essence, and represent concepts visually.
In 2015, I founded EQUIP Learning Solutions to help organizations develop learning strategies and implement learning solutions. As I continued to incorporate visual processes and solutions into my work, clients often pointed to my ability to “find the story” in a mass of information, develop visual tools, and communicate in a visual way. Clients who had engaged with me on learning initiatives began asking me to do visual work in other areas of their businesses.
Then in 2016, I discovered the field of visual practice and realized it was what I had been searching for my entire career. I founded VizualWorx, and now I use the combination of my experience, skills, and passion to help others gain clarity and take action!
