What did your working life look like before you came to KI?

For the past 4 years, I have worked in various positions within HR / administration at Karolinska University Hospital. Most recently as management support for patient area manager within "Tema Hjärta Kärl och Neuro". A large part of this role was to work with business development and make processes more effective, but also to handle and organize incoming cases both within the Patient Area Manager's area, but also regarding his managers and staff.

What is the reason you chose HR? 

The short answer to that question is that I really like working with people! In addition, I like the variety that the HR area offers.

What do you most look forward to with your new job at Labmed?

I look forward to being involved in developing an efficient and strong HR function. It will also be both challenging and exciting to learn state labor law.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

Horses and riding are my big interest! Other than that, I enjoy doing fun things with the family.
