About me

Highly organised 29-year old tourism graduate with great coordination skills, who studied a degree in Tourism and Hospitality Management at Laurea University of Applied Sciences in Finland, including a year at Universidad Europa de Madrid.
In addition to my hospitality experience I also have a past in sales through 6 years of working in the industry in Finland. Today living in Barcelona since 2016, gaining versatile work experience in the global tourism field and improving my already strong language skills, languages being one of my passions. Eager to put my broad knowledge in action and try my wings in new positions.

My main working life experience is based upon providing high-standard customer service in retail, hotels, hostels and rental apartments. I am a native Finnish speaker and also fluent in English and Spanish, and currently have basic levels in German, Italian and Swedish.

I am very familiar with international atmospheres, multicultural working teams and working under pressure. As an employee I am hard-working, thorough, loyal and a driven person always searching for ways to improve my skills and exceed expectations. In my free time I am athletic and social, as well as loving reading, outdoor activities and traveling.
