Director Executiv Adjunct
Membru Executiv Board

Over the course of my career, I have obtained a variety of communication and leadership experiences in national government, corporate industry, and consultancy. When I joined Avenor College as Director of Admissions & Communications back in 2012, however, I discovered my passion for working in an educational setting.

After almost 5 years in Brussels, where I was the Admissions & Marketing Manager at BEPS International School, I am honoured and happy to return to Avenor College. The past 5 years have provided me with a wonderful opportunity to extend my experience still further in the wider world of education, beyond the Avenor horizons. 

Whatever the formal responsibilities of my role, connecting with people is what I most love to do. Starting with the students, continuing with the parents, and concluding with fellow team members, I am deeply committed to making people around me feel empowered – to be learners, to make the right choice for their children, and to be successful in their professional roles.

In this new position I fully expect the challenge to be immense, but I cannot wish for a better organisation to be a part of. I am excited to share the school’s ambitions and play my part to realise them. 

One of the lessons I learned while being away is that the only way to do great work is to love what you do, love who you do it with, and love who you are while you do it. I only feel this at Avenor.

I am very thankful to bring my son back to Avenor and to share the experience of my home country with my husband.
