I am a Portuguese native that has received her Bachelor’s degree from the Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne (EHL), one of the leading universities for hospitality management worldwide. I am also finishing my Rooms Division Management Training in Mandarin Oriental, Barcelona, a hotel group known for its prestigious service. I am looking to soon enter the corporate world where innovation and an entrepreneurial mindset is encouraged. My key areas of focus are Revenue Management Innovative Techniques and Optimization, Rooms Division and, Corporate Sales and Partnerships.
Having lived in 6 countries has made me into a creative and open-minded person with excellent interpersonal communication skills. These allowed me to learn five different languages, that I speak fluently, and the ability to have relationships with people from around the globe. My high involvement in the student life of EHL as a member of several committees with different responsibilities has given me the ability to self-manage and be a self-starter.
I am a dynamic, motivated and professional person that is looking for personal & professional growth within the revenue generating departments of the Hospitality Industry.
