    Personal Coach/Councelor, Virtual Assistant and Translator

    Montenegro - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 3

    I have over 8 years of experience in the area of translation, administration and project management. I have worked for numerous international organisations such as OSCE, ODIHR, Save the Children UK, WYG International and United Nations. Besides project management in the area of human rights and development, I have been dealing with administration, budgeting, finance matters, report-writing, translation, editing and training. My experience is not limited to these areas of work, since I have been teaching English to adults and worked as an interpreter for numerous ministries and agencies in Montenegro. My primal education are languages (English and German) since I graduated from Belgrade University (Serbia) as English Professor and Translator. But my passion for almost 5 years is self-growth and psychotherapy. I am a counselor in Gestalt psychotherapy and a wingwave coach as well as Transformation Game facilitator. This led me to organising workshops for youth, single mothers and people who like to discover their inner-self, as well as their personal strengths and potentials. I like to merge all these various skills in my everyday work: self-growth not only helps me manage my skills and time better, but improves my writing skills making it more expressive and creative. Administration and finance build on my budget and project management. Translation and interpreting enhance my knowledge in various areas, from social and economic aspect of people's lives, through environmental protection and EU accession processes. All this implies that I am aware of the project cycle from inception to conclusion. I believe I can contribute to any team and be an excellent asset to anyone who likes to get the job done timely and efficiently by bringing innovation and fresh ideas.
