Tell us about your career and how it all started?

Back in University, I studied Speech and Language Therapy and Audiology. When I came into the working field, I felt that this wasn’t what I wanted to do for the rest of my life because I couldn’t use my strengths at its best. Moving to the US with my husband automatically meant a huge change for me career wise. I decided to look for a new opportunity and that’s when BelCham came on my path. As well as the team and I decided that my personality was a perfect match for the role and I’m grateful every day that I got the change to develop myself in this role.


What does sisterhood mean to you?

There is so much more behind the word sisterhood that I can’t give 1 definition for it. The connection and bond between women is something that goes beyond boundaries. Sisterhood is all about connecting, sharing, loving, support and so much more.


What's your personal mantra?

I choose to LIVE. Enjoy every single thing you do in life. Life is so valuable and awesome at the same time.


What is your superpower?

Joy. I try to enjoy everything I do, and I love to share my happiness with others. My day is the best when I can just talk and connect with people.


Tell us about women that inspired you and your female role models:

Well, obviously…. QUEEN B <3. She’s doesn’t need words to come of powerful at all. And next (but definitely not second place), Michelle Obama. I love who she is, what she stands for and she’s doing it all in her natural beautiful way. Oh, and my lovely momma of course. No explanation needed for that one.


What would be your advice for women who are building careers in your industry?

Just do it. Enjoy and spread the joy you have and feel in yourself. Don’t just think, but act. Communication is key.


One piece of advice for your 18 year old self?

Don’t take it too serious, but relax and enjoy. Don’t go to fast but stand still and realize where you are already.
