Heidi left her career as Civil Servant in the Finnish Ministry of Defence to join Blic in January 2018. She brings with her an extensive expertise in national and international defence policy, defence cooperation and analysis of the security environment. During her career, she has reported to and advised the government’s top leadership on bilateral defence relations and multinational defence cooperation with organisations, such as EU, NATO, UN and the OSCE. She has also served as Defence Counselor at the Embassy of Finland in Washington and as Exchange Officer in the UK Ministry of Defence. Co-creating for a well-functioning society and taking Finland’s interests further in various international fora, are issues close to Heidi’s heart. After the office hours, Heidi enjoys the everyday family life and exercise in the company of audiobooks or friends by the beautiful seaside of her Espoo neighborhood.
