Hello, I'm Alexandra,

I'm a salsa lover and a hiking enthusiast, and I appreciate a good conversation. I love nature because it reminds me of my childhood in Romania. I relocated to Denmark a few years ago, and today, hygge is part of my vocabulary.

I always wanted to build a life where I work passionately for things that matter. I have been fortunate to meet amazing people throughout my journey who inspired me to follow my dreams and build strong communities around the world.

With a background in business and innovation, I worked for companies in both the scaling phase to build robust internal processes and strategies to navigate growth and for more established enterprises such as Maersk. I grew professionally in roles within business development, product management, and venture capital.

In 2020, I started Femme Lead Podcast to provide young women with role models for their career from international communities. I am an experienced speaker and moderator, eager to connect with inspiring individuals and positively influence the world.

I am very involved in my community with Femme Lead where we empower women to chart their course toward fulfilling careers.

I am the podcast host where I interview female leaders on their career lessons and advice, we host events, and coaching calls and we built a platform to reach a global community. 

We were finalists for Nordic Women in Tech Awards and were named in the Top 5 Initiatives of the Year in 2021 with Femme Lead. We work toward U.N.'s sustainable development goals, primarily SDG #5 focused on gender equality and SDG #8 economic empowerment.


Having started joining volunteering activities at the age of 17, I grew up to be part of the Rotary family, and the European Rotaract Information Center as a board member until 2021 where I learned a lot about leadership and teamwork at an executive level.


Growing up I needed to find my tribe, and through extracurricular activities, I got familiar with the fantastic world of community engagement and leadership development. I joined many programs and activities in organizations such as Aspire Education, Volunteers for Ideas and Projects, Future Entrepreneurs of Denmark, Future Leaders Global, and the Global Shapers, part of WEF.

I genuinely believe that those experiences helped shape who I am today.

In 2022 I was listed as one of the top 100 talents in Denmark by the prestigious Berlingske business newspaper. I am proud of this highlight of my career as an immigrant who didn't have an easy start in Scandinavia. 

I consider that success comes in many shapes and forms, but when looking at success we should also consider other metrics that are harder to measure such as overcoming adversity from a young age or starting over in a completely new culture and keeping the focus on achieving extraordinary things while handling multiple projects at a time. Among other professional achievements, breaking the poverty cycle of my family and becoming the first university-educated person in my generation is a personal win. 

Feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn or drop me a message if you think we can collaborate and build something together.
