Previously, she was involved with the Swiss Refugee Council in the education department coordinating and facilitating awareness raising events at Swiss schools.

We audit, this means ...
HQAI provides an external view on how well organisations apply a standard - with the CHS this means how well organisations put people affected by crisis at the centre of their work. Organisations learn from this external view and get a feedback on areas to improve. Organisations using our services show that they are committed and they want to learn.
For me, HQAI is special because of its people: the auditors who have a great variety of backgrounds, the members of the governing bodies who bring in different professional and educational experiences, and finally, the staff at the secretariat and my colleagues. A dedicated, smart and committed team and a pleasure to work with!
