As a former Head of Quality and Lean Implementation,
I know how to build a continuous improvement culture, focus on customer satisfaction and facilitate team performance.

Through my international life and work experience, I understand cultural diversity, and have learned what it takes to be courageous and establish a new life in different countries. Over the past 12 years,I got to live and work in the USA, Canada, and Australia.
