Besides CT NVC, I have an Executive MBA, Fulbright honor (MIIS, CA, US), and an MPA (Roskilde University, Denmark).

I have worked as a university teacher and for the international diplomacy through UNCDF and the General Consulate of Ireland. In 2008 I founded the company Living Communication, through which I support organisations and individuals in building healthy work environments with principles of communication, dialogue&feedback structures, conflict resolution and inner leadership.

I am a politician since 2010, sitting in the City Council of Lyngby-Taarbæk (Denmark). Now as Chairman of the Child&Youth Council (Børne&Ungdomsudvalget), and member of the Economic Council (Økonomi udvalget).

I have lived and worked in many countries with my husband and 4 children.
 

Aim

1. Trainings and projects through my company: Living Communication, www.livingcommunication.dk

2. Contributing to more connection and dialogue-based cooperation in politics

Mission

- initiating new ideas, keeping the overview and bringing projects to a closure
- inviting to dialogue, connection and transparency in the process, while staying focused on results and forward moving

Vision

To contribute to more beauty in the world, and maintain variation - and live from doing it.
