My career has led me to the study of politics in the international milieu after one year in marketing and management. An interactive part of a job is a major bonus for me, as I see my communication skills as one of my highlights. My attribute to speak 3 languages fluently (French, English and Norwegian), as well as six years with Spanish in school, and four years of German at university, has helped me to adapt quickly to different environments or work ethics. Raised in a French family surrounded by the Scandinavian culture has given me the ability to get the best from both worlds, as I see the Scandinavian part of me as the disciplined and self-reliable side, and the French as the cultural and self-confident.
My own cosmopolitan background and analytical interests in other cultures, together with a command of several European languages, have also left me confident in handling negotiations that require the reconciliation of different national approaches to otherwise common problems.
I have more than 20 years of experience as a tour leader, interpreter and translator for German and French tourist groups, presenting and marketing Scandinavia as a tourist destination, as a receptionist in different tourist hotels, as a customer consultant for an international tour operator and as a translator of technical texts, user manuals and commercial catalogs from English, German, French and Danish to Norwegian, using CAT-tools. I also have experience with website administration and web shops from many years of work with sales and marketing.
My mother tongue is Norwegian, I am fluent in English, German, French and Lithuanian.
My family, friends and colleagues know me as gentle, positive, active and outgoing, but also as a person who enjoys working independently and purposefully. I have good communication skills, I like challenges, and I am reliable.
