I am passionate about the human side that labour law brings and the closeness that I have with the concepts of human resources. I am lucky to have the chance to get to know the DNA of companies. I can then develop ties with both employers and unions with respect to facilitating harmonious exchanges and working relationships.
I am involved with the Cervo Foundation for which I am a member of its Board of Directors. I decided to get involved because I believe mental health is an issue which affects everyone from near and far as 1 in 5 people will have a mental health problem during their lifetime. I also think it is important to demystify taboos around this issue and encourage people to talk about it.
