A day without laughter is a day wasted.
Charlie Chaplin

About me

I go through life open, cheerful, humorous, highly empathetic and efficient with a sense of purpose. In addition, I see myself as a service-oriented practitioner. My travel heart beats for far and near countries, foreign cultures and languages. Working abroad has taught me flexibility and a positive approach to change. Observing and being able to grasp situations holistically is one of my great strengths. All this and much more I bring to a cooperation. It is best if we get to know each other personally.​​​​​​​
