What I did

I am a Coordinator for cultural projects.

 

From 2005 to 2009 I worked in cultural projects: I started as a National Sponsorship Coordinator for the Alliance French Film Festival in Australia, and then moved to Madrid to work in a talents agency.

 

I am a Teacher at heart.

 

In 2004 I lived in Colombia for some months and volunteered as a French Teacher for an NGO based in the favelas of Cartagena de Las Indias.

From 2009 to 2011 I worked as a remote french teacher, using digital platform to teach corporate students all over Spain. I then moved to an e-learning consultancy to manage an e-learning platform.

 

I am a Digital Project Manager

 

In 2012 I first worked as a Digital Project Manager for EU funded projects. After 2 years I gained a PMP certification and completed a Human Computer Interaction course. I entered Fjord (Service Design Consultancy acquired by Accenture in 2013) as a Project Manager

 

I am a Researcher, a Strategist, and a Service Designer.

 

Within Fjord, my background in sociology and anthropology and my never-ending curiosity led me to work as a Service Designer (research, analysis and design of a strategy). My role at Fjord was never defined by my title. I throve in this company because it actually gave me the space I needed to make my own way and try things out. I could explore and face challenges from as many perspectives I needed or wanted. After 5 years at Fjord and growing from junior Project Manager to PM Lead (coordinating a team of 7 PMs in our Madrid and Barcelona studio), I decided to leave the company to start a new adventure.

 

And surely more to come...

 

I am now part of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation working as a Project Manager for Circular Design for the Fashion Industry. Our mission is to accelerate the transition to a circular economy, an economy that is restorative and regenerative by design. Within that mission, my role is to shape ways to inspire and provide guidance to the creatives working in the fashion industry so that they apply circular design principles in their daily work (and transform the industry!). Big challenge ahead, and the time to act is definitely NOW.
