I've been called international or a global citizen. I grew up in Canada with Polish and Finnish heritage, and since 2006 I've been mostly based in Helsinki, Finland, but currently live in Switzerland. I enjoy all type of sports but one would probably call me a endurance enthusiast after having completed a few marathons and a cross country skiing even from Russia to Sweden.
I appreciate how sport can break through many mediums such as sport as a healthy activity, a social activity both by participation and following professional sports, a educational tool ect. My b.a is in political science, sociology and criminology. My master's in sociology was on migrant women's pathways into participation and sports.
I have been a long time volunteer, board member, and supporter of many multicultural sport organisations.
My main interests in S & D are focused on gender, empowerment, migration, integration and inclusion. I try and direct my interests towards solutions, guidelines, and best practices. My experience is rather diverse I am a consultant, volunteer, editor, writer, grant-writer, editor, board member, project coordinator, event-organiser, social media manager and more.
Currently I am looking for new opportunities around the world. If there is anything available please contact me.
