Work history

About me

My volunteering experience has been with Ourmala as a Yoga Teacher. 

My profession is Human Resources and I am  very passionate about it. I have 4 years of very progressive HR. My last position was onboard a cruise ship. As you can imagine, this year has been very different onboard and I found myself at sea for 5 straight months without touching land. During this time the focus was repatriating crew, looking out for their mental health and also a large change management process.

I have been the standalone HR representative in my last 2 positions and I love that there is never a dull moment. 

What am I looking for

I am most interested in international relations- organisations that work to help less fortunate people in developing countries, and also mental health and wellbeing organisations.
