I was fortunate enough as a kid to live in many different places and got to experience many different cultures. I was born in Sweden and lived in Sydney, Australia and in Tokyo, Japan. Growing up with an American father and a Swedish mother, I got to learn a lot about the Swedish and American cultures. After graduating from high school in 2015 In Gothenburg, Sweden I moved to Philadelphia to explore my roots in the United States. In 2016, I accepted a scholarship to play lacrosse at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida. I am now a senior finishing up my B.B.A. degree in Management.
What did you do prior to working at SACC Georgia?
Prior to working at the SACC Georgia, I had the opportunity to work for the Florida Panthers of the National Hockey League as a Financial Accounting intern. I worked alongside the executive staff for a professional sports organization and got to see first-hand how teams manage a budget, promote events, and day to day activities for a sport organization.
What would you like to achieve at the SACC?
I would like to enhance my knowledge about Swedish and American business operations and would like to help the Georgia office attain its goals and promote the SACC’s presence in Atlanta. In addition, help companies here in the area benefit from the SACC’s services and opportunities.
What do you look forward to the most about being a part of the SACC?
I look forward being able to bring my skills that I have learned throughout my young adult life and bring it to a professional setting where I believe I can excel. Having grown up in a bilingual household, I feel like I can relate and can bring a lot to the table at the chamber of commerce and to businesses in the area. I feel like it will be the first time in a long time where I can showcase my skills from my past and incorporate them into this diverse setting.
