Sallamaarit changed her official’s boots into the consultant’s briefcase in the autumn of 2016. Before Blic Sallamaarit has been working i.a. in the Ministry of Education and Culture and as a MEP’s special adviser in the European Parliament. Markkanen is a member of municipal council in her hometown Siilinjärvi and she is the chair of technical board. Sallamaarit is an expert in local policy and she has various eight-years’ experience in the Centre Party.  In Blic she is working i.a. with food industry and energy sectors.

For Sallamaarit, her motivator both at work and leisure is the thought that one does not specialize only in one area but their skills should be developed in such a way that they can perform tasks in a comprehensive and versatile way. In her free time Sallamaarit challenge herself with CrossFit and plays football. She also loves redecorate her home at every glance.
