What will be your main tasks here at MedH?

I will be responsible for the department's communication. This means, among other things, that I am the editor of the websites and the newsletter for the department's employees. Anyone with a news tip is welcome to get in touch!

Where have you worked previously?

I have worked as a communicator at Hörselskadades distrikt i Stockholms län, an organisation within Hörselskadades Riksförbund (HRF). There I had the overall responsibility for the district's communication and worked with the website, newsletter, member communication and interest policy parts, such as debate articles and letters to various decision makers. I was also involved in organising lectures and planning our participation in various events.

What do you look forward to in your new role?

I am looking forward to taking on new challenges as a communicator and creating communication on exciting topics that are new to me.

How do you like to spend your free time?

In my free time I like to meet my friends and I also spend some time training. During the winter, I like cross-country skiing and right now I'm aiming for the Vasaloppet in March 2024.

How do our staff get in touch with you?

You are welcome to contact me via email: or Teams.
