Q: What is your background experience?
I worked in international sales for ITT (manufacturer of highly-engineered critical components and customized technology solutions for the energy, transportation and industrial markets), managed a Danish modern furniture store (BoConcept) and worked for many years as an admission counselor at a mental hospital.
