I am a Glasgow girl living in Finland with my Swedish fiancée and three kids. I moved to Åland Islands, Finland in 2019 from Malta, where I had lived for 8 years. I met Sebastian 3 months after I moved to Malta – which was not the plan at all – but when things feel right, you should just go with it. A house, a son and 2 daughters later, we decided on a new adventure to Scandinavia; which is a wonderful place to raise children.
I graduated from university in Glasgow with Marketing & Business Degree and have always worked in that field. With Glasgow being a social hub of nightlife and dining, I naturally went into Marketing within the leisure industry – which I loved. At that point, Digital Marketing and Social Media were really starting to take off and become a fundamental part of Marketing.
I naturally moved into hotel Marketing and supported hotels throughout the UK, the company I worked for managed over 50 hotels ranging across various brands; franchised and privately owned. It was a real variation which made the job different and exciting every day.
When I was approaching 30 I wanted a change, a big change. That’s when I started thinking about moving abroad. Being half Italian, the Mediterranean has always been a great love of mine so I applied for a leisure Marketing job in Malta and c’est la vie….
