I’ve had my current post as Manager, Education, since 2013. I came to TELA, to work as an information officer, from Parliament in 2007. By education, I’m a visualist (Bachelor of Visual Marketing), a Bachelor of Business Administration, and a work instructor and dressmaker in the clothing industry.
In my spare time:
You can find me with my dog in the forest, at an open-air dance, at concerts, in the theatre, doing crosswords, picking berries, and gardening or renovating in the countryside. Since I’m a seamstress, all kinds of handicrafts are naturally part of my spare time activities. In recent years, choirs and karaoke have given way to singing for my own enjoyment at home and while driving.
Comments by workmates:
“Kirsi gathers training strands systematically into separate units. No need to wonder whether something was taken care of at TELA’s training events; the power pack called Kirsi sees to it that everything is under control! Besides being systematic and having a sense of humour, Kirsi is an avid and skilled karaoke singer and the owner of a wise dog, Rekku.”
