More about Alexandra

I have three main roles:

  • HR Consultant in HR Tech.
  • Coach – I coach parents. My book, “Förklok förälder,” will be released on September 20, 2023.
  • Mindfulness Instructor – I host digital mindfulness meditations and workshops for companies.

I am a systems scientist who thrives at the intersection of IT and HR. I do my best work when I get to implement HR systems, streamline processes and lead change. I enjoy seeing others develop and believe that most of us need someone to brainstorm with in order to come up with our best ideas and solutions. My most rewarding and also most challenging role is that of being a mother. I am convinced that I am not the only one in need of support in parenting. Therefore, the role of a parenting coach is a given. Mindfulness is a key to self-leadership, self-awareness, and making conscious choices. These skills are needed both personally and in the professional sphere.

In summary, I do what I love and believe in – a combination of my interests and skills that I hope will make a difference.

Alexandra is both a certified coach (ACC) and mindfulness instructor.

Why is the site called The Mountain and the Sea?

Both the mountain and the sea are common symbols used in many meditations.

From the depths of the oceans, deep below the surface, we are reminded that we, too, have a place of calm and stillness within us. It makes no difference to the deep waters if the surface mirrors the sky in a perfect replica or if huge waves roll across it. The depths of the sea are still tranquil, calm and peaceful.

The mountain can teach us that we, too, are gounded and unshakeable, regardless of what is going on around us. The mountain doesn’t concern itself with whether the sun warms it’s sides or if the snow lies heavy, covering all. It takes the changing weather in stride, just as we can take the natural comings and goings of life with equanimity.
