My Background and Career
I can make use of all my experience from jobs mainly in cultural institutions, construction and architectural companies and non-profit sector in my current position.
All life I like meeting with people and build contacts at different levels and in different areas that help me in my personal and professional growth.
The biggest threat was lack of time to family life, which for me is a big priority.
Existing political situation and the success of the party for which I stood helped me.
I had problems that I had to overcome to be here today, for example decision to take this vital step in my age and get over with the loss of privacy, or financial investments in electoral campaigns, risk-taking of loss of income. But my family supported me.
Continuous improvement and education I consider as an important part of my professional life.
I establish contacts easily, I communicate openly, I manage stressful situations calmly.
My big hobby is amateur theater.
My optimism and ability to see things in a positive light and discipline help me tighten things done.
I am able to use the experience and advice of others. I don’t hesitate to ask for advice. I am able to quickly make up my mind. I like to have objectives and to reach my goals. I solve problems and I find solutions. I like to work as a team. I coordinate and motivate the staff. I like to negotiate so that everyone ends up satisfied. In case of arguments I’m looking for peace. I know and I use the required techniques to do a good job. I easily adapt myself to changes.
