I am a psychologist with a strong occupational psychology focus. My core competence is psychological personnel assessment, which I have worked with for several years. In addition, I have gained work experience as an occupational health psychologist and HR specialist. Through these positions, I have had the privilege to been able to consider recruitments and their successes from a variety of different viewpoints.

The most motivating thing in my work as an assessment consultant is the opportunity to use my expertise to support the client in making fitting hiring decisions. I am also motivated by helping candidates in strengthening their self-reflection, as well as hearing different career stories. I find my work as an assessment consultant versatile and inspiring, and I get to use my strengths in it.

I am a generalist, oriented in educational sciences. As a coordinator, I am responsible for the smooth process of personnel assessments. In addition, I am the contact person for the candidates. Studies in General and Adult Education have deepened my understanding of people. To me, providing quality and personalized service is important and my strong customer service experience in large organizations has laid a good foundation for it. My kind and energetic way of working ensures fluent cooperation.

As a bilingual, I have always been interested in different cultures. Half of my relatives are from China, so I consider both Helsinki and Shanghai close to my heart. In Shanghai I enjoy the company of my relatives and the bustle of the big city and in Helsinki I enjoy the beautiful nature and the tranquility of everyday life.
