Marketing, Communications, and Triathlon in Zürich, Schweiz
Hi! This needs updating. In the meantime here's the old version:
I'm a multilingual Swiss, who earned her Masters' degree in International Relations at the Graduate Institute in Geneva and enjoyed travelling and working in India and Spain before joining Apple Switzerland, doing Business Development for the Swiss Education sector. I love connecting people and organizations and communicating with a variety of stakeholders.
I've recently spent 3 months in Paraguay as a Kiva Fellow, supporting the work that Kiva does on the ground. You can follow-up on my adventure via http://www.facebook.com/kivafellowshipPY14
I am also looking for a job with a purpose, within a company that is serious about their impact on society and the environment. Don't hesitate to get in touch if you know about one!
The last two things I studied were Mandarin Chinese in Shanghai during a 2-month leave from work and an Advanced Studies Program in Corporate Social Responsibility at the University of Applied Sciences in Lucerne in 2013. At the moment I satisfy my need for learning through massive open online courses.
I also like to swim bike and run, but I'm most proud of having gone from 0 to (1500) 2100 metres of freestyle open water swimming within (a year) 18 months. In September 2015 I achieved my personal goal of running my first marathon. Because streets are too boring, I chose the Jungfrau Marathon (1829m of altitude difference from start to finish) in the beautiful Swiss alps and managed to do it just within the official time limit of 6h30.
I'd love to start an online magazine around organic and healthy food. Want to work on it together with me? Get in touch!
