Church of Sweden
– Present (12 years 10 months)

I've served in many parishes that are part of the diocese of Lund.

Lunds kommun
(7 months)

I assisted the elderly, both in a nursing home and on location in Dalby and its neighboring villages. I recommend working in the healthcare sector - I'd even go so far as to say that the world would be a different place if everyone had tried working there. Here's a bit of free learning for those of you who haven't tried: living with the aftermath of stroke stinks, and if you can stand on your own two feet, look around, listen, and eat by yourself, consider yourself a very fortunate person. I do.

I wrote documentation for online publication, I created templates and wrote Telelogic's indexing strategy. I was part of a small but diverse team and enjoyed it immensely.
