Global mindset

Ski instructor, yoga teacher, bread baker, radio host, manager, writer. These are some of the varied jobs I've had, adapting and learning different methods of communication to effectively lead a team.

As a bread baker every day required adapting to varied multiple time schedules for up to 1000 loaves of bread. I can prioritise, multi task and create structure as a leader and team player.

Having lived in multiple countries I realise even if we share  a common language miscommunication can occur. I strive to use inclusive and welcoming methods of communication and consider cultures when developing products and connection.
