Career path
Being a social butterfly, I’ve always been attracted to people and done quite a bit of volunteer work from an early age. Working at the National Gallery of Slovenia and the SNG Opera and Ballet Ljubljana allowed me to learn about the world of culture and events, which I later got to know even better by working at Ljubljana Castle, the Ljubljana Festival and the Ljubljana International Film Festival. Through studying management and law I have gained invaluable work experience and have participated in projects by the companies Pristop, Event Design and Lek Sandoz. I have done promotional work at various international trade fairs and conferences. I continued my master studies with a Master in Tourism Management at the Faculty of Economics, and at the same time I also got a wonderful opportunity to become part of the Union Hotels team. Here I immensely enjoy my work as an assistant to the Marketing Manager and coordinator of cultural and promotional events.

Q: What is your favorite meetings brand?
Union Hotels. For me, it is a synonym for a whole set of memories, stories, and relationships with a single address – in the heart of the city. It is home to dedicated meeting and event venues with the highest quality and satisfaction level, a superb location and excellent facilities for the world of corporate, association and governmental meetings, cultural events and diverse social gatherings.

Q: What’s the bravest thing you’ve ever done?
Allowing my heart to win a battle against my fears. The hardest, bravest and best thing I’ve ever done was letting myself really fall in love – all the unknowns and vulnerabilities included. And I have been rewarded for it a million times over!

Q: What’s your alternative career fantasy?
I love my job, it’s a wonderful blend of creativity and business where I get to see ideas brought to life. But knowing that the world is a big place, waiting to be explored, I might choose to move to a different part of the world to experience event management and marketing with a local flavour.

Q: What are you obsessed with at the moment?
Apart from enthusiastically soaking up new knowledge as part of my masters studies in tourism management and gaining invaluable experience at Union Hotels, I am addicted to an active lifestyle. My greatest passion is to explore foreign countries and cultures. I am currently getting ready for my trip to the USA and Canada next month.

Q: Your goals before 50?
To remain fearless in the pursuit of what sets my soul on fire. And to be filthy rich. Rich in adventure, knowledge, laughter, family and love :)
