Do you have a website?
What are your favorite platforms or which charitable organizations you admire most? I care deeply about people, animals and the environment. I don’t like to see suffering go unaided and will always do what I can to help on the ground floor. I have worked with many charities and supported many causes in my life and always try to focus my energy on what actually helps rather than what supports the organization on a surface level.
Who is your favorite role model?
Since I was a little girl, I have always admired my Mother for her strength, imagination, perspective and intuition. She has a unique way of seeing alternative views in any situation. Her wealth of experience and knowledge is a vast universe that you could spend a lifetime around and never learn it all. I find my friends sitting for hours listening to her stories and hope to one day capture some for a book about her life.
Ten years from now where do you see yourself?
I was born to be a healer and I have always dedicated most of my energies to helping others. I would like to use my platforms to raise awareness for important issues regarding people, animals and the environment and work as a good will ambassador.
How do you maintain work and life balance?
I work outside as often as possible. I draw my energy from nature. My morning emails are done under a shaded canopy on a comfortable chair with a coffee and my dog at my feet enjoying the morning sunshine. I take a long walk every afternoon by the water and in the evening I have tea under the stars.
Working smart is all about planning. I try to re-assess my projects regularly. I am constantly evaluating how everything is doing and if a project is moving in the right direction. I have a great ability for recognizing what’s draining my resources and not meeting it’s mark. I think two of my top recommendations to others are: discover mediation and never be afraid to say “No”.

Do you have any pets?
I have a wonderful little Maltese named Valentine that I just adore. He has a big heart and lots of spirit. Every morning he wakes me up to play by pretending to woof at something in the distance. He looks at me and then does it again until I wake up. He’s always turning things into charming little games.
