Educator with a passion for holistic wellbeing, growth mindset, positive school culture and development of skills and capabilities of the whole child.

I am a global citizen with a Finnish heart. After completing my studies in Finland I have travelled and lived in a number if countries. For the past 12 years I have been living and working in Melbourne. In addition to education I have studies psychology, sociology, tourism and travel, and I am also a professional counsellor.

I have extensive experience in the private school sector in classroom and specialist  teaching, management, curriculum development and student wellbeing. 

I am passionate about developing the mental and emotional capability of each individual, providing them with tools for creating a positive outlook and courage to try, adjust, and try again so that they can live a meaningful life with true connections, open communication and skills and confidence to let their light shine. 

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my two daughters, swimming, running, playing tennis, yoga, pilates and spontaneous adventures near and far. 

Why do you want to be a part of the HundrED Community?

I believe that sharing knowledge is true power. I am excited to be part of a platform that shares educational knowledge globally. In this way we can create meaningful experiences that have true impact and positive outcomes all around the world.
