She has experience in working in different countries in Europe. She has gained business experience in Poland when she worked for Alexander Mann Solutions, where she worked as a recruitment consultant for a foreign corporate client.

She was one of the team leaders for internal consultants responsible for  Organizational Effectiveness.

 

She completed the Leadership Development Intensive course organised by Scherer Leadership International and a course in Intercultural Navigators organised by British Council, which provided her with extensive grounds to understand diversity. In 2013-2015 she was the chairperson and coordinator of the trainers’ section within SIETAR Polska.

Personally, she’s a big fan of Indian cuisine and journeys into the unknown. Together with her husband she has written three traveller blogs, where they described their journeys to Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and India. She likes helping people grow by showing them new pathways and posing challenges.
