I was diagnosed with SLE in 2015, which was the starting point of my education and journey as a patient of lupus.
From an academic field, I have one Master‘s degree in EMBA and second in Education in Arts.
I work as an author and as a lecturer: writing novels, teaching Communication and Creative Writing. Before this, I worked in management for multiple Scandinavian corporations, in the fields of Strategic Change and Communication .
Joining the community of Lupus Europe in 2017, I started to dedicate my time and energy to Lupus Europe activities, different projects within Patient Advisory Network, and being a Co-opt for the Lupus Europe Board in 2022. In addition, I am taking part in the EUPATI Patient Expert Training Programme.
Lupus has deeply impacted my life – I have damaged ligaments, bones, joints and CNS. However, this illness has also brought some positive changes – It has incentivised me to practice healthier eating habits, get enough rest, exercise, and most importantly: find ways to help people who have lupus.
My core values are Independence, Equity and Diversity. They will help me to assist the Lupus Europe community and be a dedicated Board Member.
