In which industry do you work, and what is one of your favorite things about working in your industry?

Klarna is a global payments company focusing on making customer transactions fast, safe and easy. One of my favorite things about working with Klarna is being exposed to some really awesome partners and helping them figure out how best to leverage the technology Klarna offers retailers and consumers.

How does your company work with or within the NetSuite ecosystem?

Klarna and Netsuite have a built-in extension that allows retailers to integrate smoothly with Klarna’s payment solutions.

What are 1-2 things you do every day that has helped get you to where you are in your career?

I am very competitive by nature. So one thing I do is challenge myself to improve constantly. I always ask the people who know me best to help identify areas where I need improvement and work on making those changes. So I guess the one big thing I do on a regular basis is self assessment and this has really helped me professionally as well as personally.

Which celebrity, athlete, or famous person do people say you look like? // Who would you say is your celebrity doppelganger?

Lisa Kudrow is my celebrity look alike. I have strangers that stop me in the streets telling me I look just like her.

What book are you reading now and why did you choose it? Or what is the last book you read and why did you choose it?

Never Split the Difference: Negotiating As If Your Life Depended On It” by former FBI negotiator, Chris Voss. I enjoyed reading this book to improve my negotiation skills.
