Sobre mí
I studied a B.A. in International Relations and a Master's Degree in Population and Social Development.  My professional and academic endeavours span seven countries, including working on an academic ship and at an environmental floating lab in four continents during five years. This is evidence of my ability to work efficiently with remote teams of varied backgrounds along with local partners, to efficiently create and implement innovative initiatives.

My abilities range from personal assistance, translation, project management, hospitality and travel logistics tasks, to the organisation’s development and innovation, securing funding, building strategic partnerships and harvesting multilateral coalitions, as well as identifying key opportunities and directly supporting the strategic planning and development of the organisation.  I work with very high quality standards and a results oriented perspective, to find solutions with a creative approach and to make joint decisions within cross-cultural environments.

I am permanently fascinated by exciting international challenges and I consider myself an intrinsic relationship builder and team worker.  I trust that my experience will allow me to significantly contribute to your mission and specific projects.
