From curious adventurer, to helping entrepreneurs and leaders make a difference that matters to others...
I couldn’t choose just one thing to be in life, so my first of many ADVENTURES started at 19. I still consider it to be the most important life wisdom and education I’ve ever had. All my friends started their career, and in a way I did too….
World Adventure, Tango and a Backpack
I’ve always been curious about human potential and what we can do and become.
Why do some people struggle while others find a way to thrive amongst chaos and poor conditions and often despite the most challenging circumstances?
Why do some people want to EXPLORE while others are happy staying where they are, doing what they’re doing?
These questions led me backpacking the world with a couple of outfits to “re-wear”, a mosquito repellent and an open mind ready to explore the "School of Life". Basically, I then lived what we today call living “off the grid”.
This opened up a completely new world to me and I learnt so much about people. People I met, fellow travelers and natives opened up and gave me a peak into their “lives”.
I quickly felt that to create connection with people was one of my gifts, giving me meaning and a deep sense of purpose. In short- it made me feel GOOD!
My second big adventure took me to Australia and Argentina for International Business Studies and some passionate Tango dancing in the streets of Buenos Aires.
School of Life & the Corporate world
After gaining new & valuable knowledge from the "School of Life" and a Bachelor degree in International Business, the corporate world was calling me.
I 2012, I started a new professional journey and became a Certified Business and Life Coach.
At 40 I quit my job to build a coaching business.
Passions in Life & Work
The honest truth is that I didn’t really want to become an entrepreneur, but I just couldn’t ignore that whispering “voice” anymore. The voice within that had been calling me for a while…So I finally listened and left to follow my passion and my dream.
Today I work with leaders and teams, developing their authentic leadership philosophy and style. I create programs and processes to help my clients break barriers and become the leaders they were born to be.
I also love to lead yoga, Inferno Hot Pilates and Zumba classes, teaching people to be present and connect with their body.
People often refer to me as enthusiastic & energetic with an optimistic outlook on life and for believing in the potential of people.
I am passionate about personal growth, music, dancing, cultures and traditions, traveling, laughing, having fun and create atmospheres of “feel-good” vibes.
Bootcamp & Bergen
In my free time I get energy from working out at Barry’s Bootcamp, hiking or socializing with friends.
I live in Bergen in Norway, but feel more at home in Latin-American and Caribbean countries. Argentina, Peru and Cuba are some favorites.
Lead from the Heart
We live in uncertain times with unprecedented common challenges that require transformation through presence.
To lead from the heart means to lift oneself and others to become more than they already are by bringing more empathy to the world through transformational leadership.
Leaders are great role models of influence and can impact teams in transformational ways.
As a Certified International Coach, I’ve been applauded on by professional associations, from National Healthcare to National Art Galleries.
