After 10 years of banking career, I have become fascinated by the Spa concept. In 2010 I launched despreSpa.ro - the most important wellness platform in Romania, which has become the main information source for readers around the whole country, journalists and spa professionals. Since then, I have been actively involved in the field and I centralized the Romanian Spa market information, while constantly working with and reuniting the representatives of spa centers, spa consultants, spa trainers, producers and distributors of spa products & equipments. In 2015 I founded the Romanian SPA Association.
In 2018-2019 my main focus is the development of the Wellness Tourism in Romania.
