Why do I do what I do?
I like a challenge and to keep learning. I want to help organisations and people doing great work for the planet and for people. I need to live by my values: integrity, honesty, trust, kindness, freedom, and creativity.
I care about making a difference. I love nature and wildlife, animals and the arts, and having positive connections with people of all walks of life.
I believe in furthering knowledge and want to play an albeit small part in building a fairer more sustainable future.
I volunteer every week with the Red Cross in Bergen (Bergen Røde Kors) and also with CRUX Kalfarhuset oppfølgingssenter (a local social and rehabilitation centre). I love it as I feel that I am a part of a community and that I am helping people in a very tangible way to lead a fuller life.

Fun personality quirks
I am rather clumsy and bubbly. This helps when connecting with people.
It is a useful icebreaker! I have a knack of making people feel at ease and get them talking with me.
