My greatest passion in life is design and fashion where I have a special sense of sure instinct. I am a positive, driven and forward thinking person that loves a challange! My biggest strenghts are my abilities to problem solve and think creatively.

I have a long background in retail business in different leading roles, which has given me a wideranging base of experience. I have been in charge of design, product development, production, economy, buying, logistics, import and personel, amongst other things, which really has suited my energetic and positive personality. I have during 6 years had the opportunity to lead and manage a small company, which has been an amazing learning opportunity since i have been involved in all aspects of the company. 

I convey targets, motivate and enthusiate my team to work as a unit. I am organized, coordinated, motivated and a very good communicator. I am also, through my degree in teaching used to working in teams with all kinds of people, which I really enjoy. My strength is a strategic mind which I convert into result-orientated practice.
