I am an enterprising mother of two adorable sons. Sustainable development on ecological, economical, social and individual levels is at the core of my values. I have grown up surrounded by entrepreneurs and have been working as one myself for several years. As an employee, I am flexible, independent and focused. I get easily inspired and I am wealthy in ideas. I quickly adopt new information and I’m able to apply accumulated experience efficiently. The practical work experience has brought enough ground under my feet, so that I can also bring ideas to the set target. I understand the value of long-term work and the commitment to the objectives pursued.
