Before joining forces with Revolut, she has been leading the marketing efforts of Uber in Romania, shaping the local strategy and working on strategic regional projects & initiatives. During her time at Uber, she launched 3 cities, scaled the market to 1M users, and built the marketing team from scratch.
She is a global citizen that has been living, studying & working in seven cities across Europe and the United States, she speaks four foreign languages, and she’s also the mom of a hyperactive toddler 🙂
