– My life has always been about floorball. I have played since the age of 8 for Olimpia Osowa Gdańsk, 9-time Polish champion, for over 15 years. Linking floorball to management has allowed me to follow up my passion in a professional way. Today, my whole energy is focused on my tasks at IFF, where I wish to contribute to the development of floorball internationally and hope to grow personally with the development of this sport.
Privately she shares her life with her boyfriend Jonatan and 1,5-year-old German Shepherd Lola. She is a fan of Spanish football, loves travelling and long walks with Lola.
