BIOGRAPHY

Ever since I was a child, I have had a lot of energy, loved to tell stories and found it easy to stand in front people and talk. I have always loved talking.

I started as a child actor in various family musicals in a nummber of Stockholm theaters. Then it became TV. From assistant, to weather presenter to television host. It has been my job since 1992. For several years I have worked as a moderator for various corporate events. I began to lecture in connection with my first book “Strong In Body and Mind”. My third book has just been realeased.

I work as a leader and lecturer on Springtime training trips, I built an app to facilitate everyday life and make it a little bit more fun, I collaborate with different companies and produce products I like and really use.

I have just entered into a partnership for a clothing line called “Under The Same Sun”. I am passionate about seeing how we can bring in people’s different personalities in schools and work place. That we will see people’s strengths instead of their weaknesses.

I am an ambassador to the Cancer Rehab Foundation. They do grreat work in helping people who are affected and treated for cancer to come back to life. Above all, I’m the mother of two great sons. It’s my happiness and my energy. I have a lot of energy. I enjoy my creativity and having a lot to do. For this reason, it has been extra important for me to organize my life. And if I encounter problems then I don’t get stuck but find a solution. It keeps me on track. Life is so exciting!
