“My passion is the African continent, to empower and create
meaningful collaborations, build ecosystems for impact and societal change. My work-path has lead me here always”

Copenhagen // Johannesburg

“My work and life is on two continents. I am lucky to have homes in Denmark & South Africa. I believe that I can can create new narratives from Africa and contribute with my understanding and knowledge of the Nordics to build bridges between the two – cultural, in business and with people

My work, My passion


I create responsible leadership! I create circles of trust and I empower my team. I believe in people. My team are stars, they can be trusted, become more than they think and transform into problem-solvers and independent do’ers. I develop programs, ideas and create strategies. I implement fast and learn as we go.


I build bridges, communities and impact! I help startups, foundations and governments with social transition and building new ecosystems and networks for change. I consult on all things impact, social startup & Africa related. I connect, develop and matchmake people, programs, organisations and continents.


I love music and come from a family of musicians and music lovers. Music transcends space and time! It communicates without language and is a cultural exchange catalyst like no other. I have been a DJ for 25 years -rocking dance floors, empowering youth and women through music.


I am woman. And I consider it to be one of my top superpowers. I utilize being a woman in every aspect of my life – in my leadership style, my authenticity, my work ethics and my passion for the feminine ethos.


I am a mother with a capital M. I have two sons and am the bonus mother of 2 girls. I have 2 and I have 4 kids depending on when you ask me. They are the future and I work to make the world a better place for them – through my work, being a rolemodel and being authentic me.


I am a family person and I have a big extended one made of the people I have chosen and the one that was chosen for me. I cherish being a sister: of friendship, color and family!

Me, Myself and I

For the last 15 years I have been focusing on development issues, social entrepreneurship and ecosystem building in Denmark and Sub- Saharan Africa. In government institutions, NGOs, as founder, consultant, manager and CEO.

Purpose means many different things to many people. For me a life of purpose translates into working with creating value, not only for myself by attaining my personal goals but creating impact for society through a collaborative approach. I am lucky to have been working in this space for quite a while – it has lead to meaningful encounters, fun and hard work and it has made me happy!

I am Head of Partnerships for Girls Are Awesome and I do consulting on the side. Before that i spend my time supporting entrepreneurs as CEO of Impact Hub Johannesburg – was rewarding, exciting and full of purpose. To change society, to empowering my all female team and to create meaningful impact.

I build bridges between my two continents and I split my time between Denmark and South Africa. I travel with my kids and my husband. Being from both countries it is a privilege to be able to work, live and love with a foot in both countries.
