I did some part-time consulting in 2020-2022, alongside my day job, which I have reflected on in my blog posts.
I thank all the great customers I have had the pleasure to work with during these years. I learned a lot and grew both professionally and personally, thanks to successes and solving challenges.

Short history …
I grew up in a big Finnish city but was raised on an island in the Finnish archipelago during the summers. I wanted to work for the sea so I chose to study marine biology. As graduated, I started as a teacher and ended up working for sustainable development. I found this to be my true passion, which I have had the advantage of doing for over 20 years. In 2014 defended my doctoral thesis in Environmental science about my passion, enhancing education for sustainable development. My dissertation was a cross-sectoral and interdisciplinary action research study done in a network of 11 universities in three countries about enabling change in universities.
Facilitation and education for sustainable development and sustainable leadership are areas I have expertise in. My pedagogical approach is “pracademic” – a mixture of practical examples, scientific knowledge, and teamwork. Networking and public speaking are also working areas I enjoy. In research and cooperation, my core interest is working beyond the disciplinary perspectives a.k.a. interdisciplinary.
I am curious and like getting things done.
I like reading books (especially Nordic noir), fishing, hiking, gym training, and learning new skills.
