Inspire

Born in the Milan area, after my classical studies at high school, I decided to throw myself into Economics and Management. After graduating in Italy and in Australia, I felt I wanted to continue living in a multicultural environment so I relocated to the UK where I started my career. In the past years, I worked and lived in many beautiful Countries and cities that have truly enriched me, such as Brisbane, London, Rotterdam, Rome and Milan.

As an HR professional, I am passionate about understanding and contributing to the vision of the companies we work with by providing them with the best talents, developing them and supporting their organisation needs.

I feel energised by new challenges and the idea of discovering new things every day. I am a curious and proactive person, always in learning mode and with a natural attitude for experimenting and coming up with new approaches.

I have two big passions: travelling and horse-riding (yes, I’m an animal lover!), but I also enjoy climbing, skiing and reading.
