Her passion for numbers gave birth, in the year 2000, to a significant relationship with DEStudio, which she became an Associate of in 2018. She initially performed coordination activities in the administration department, and gained growing responsibility over the years in different roles: she is currently CFO and Human Resource Manager. Moreover, thanks to her attested organizational and analytical skills, as well as a distinctive problem-solving ability, she coordinates and standardizes corporate processes. The future, from innovation to technology, intrigues her. She is always with her mascot, “Matita” (pencil), a dachshund called upon in the toughest working days to make the team smile again at the wiggle of her tail. Determined and feisty, she works proactively in extremely dynamic and competitive settings, showing rigor and balance. Over the years, she has honed her talent for complex planning and is skilled in relationship building.

“In my work, effort is always first in line. My pragmatism helps me, but to achieve results you require – above all – passion and strategic vision.”
