About Me

Here to serve. Nice to meet you!

I am a curious soul and a life-long learner who is passionate about human potential and making a difference. I work as a life coach, group facilitator and trainer in the domains of personal and organisational development, team building and gender equality. Since over 10 years I also give dance classes – cuban salsa and jazz has a special place in my heart. I have the privilege to be a mother of a little girl and live with her and my husband in Lausanne. Causes that I deeply care about are the protection of nature and gender equality & inclusion. I strive to live a sustainable lifestyle and continuously invest in further learning in the realm of social innovation, psychology and collaboration. Integrity, freedom, creativity and movement are some of my core values that I use as my guiding principles in life.


A few words about my journey


Since a child, I have been extremely curious about life. Speaking two languages and navigating between two home countries (Finland and Switzerland), made me early on capable of seeing things from various perspectives. At the same time I was uncertain about my place in the world. I had questions. Who am I? Where do I belong? What is my purpose?


I knew I wanted to do meaningful work and make a positive impact on society. Despite testing many interesting causes and directions, I didn’t seem to find my place nor fit in a specific role without some part of me staying behind or hidden.


After years of searching and testing various fields (such as tourism and contributing to a better world through working in development organisations) I have realised that only by deeply connecting to myself and brining out the courage to act on my own vision and what I feel is right, regardless of others opinions, I can do truly meaningful work. I also learned that I need to be in direct contact with people, have freedom in how I use my time and be able to combine various passions together.


I believe that when we accept ourselves as we are, trust our inner voice and follow it we can create a ripple effect of positive transformation in our lives – and though that in our surroundings. And this can take many forms! Everyone has unique gifts and missions to fulfil on this earth. 


For me living a successful live means staying true to yourself and taking action towards proactively creating the change you want to see and the life you want to live.


I look forward to connecting with you and being able to accompany you on your journey!
