My working career started in the HR department of Slovenian furniture company Meblo in Nova Gorica (NG). Before joining Pigal in NG as a commercial manager I was for a while self-employed and active in retail trade. I have been working at the Ministry of Finance since 1997, starting as senior tax inspector in the department of tax inspections and investigations at Tax office in NG. In 2012, I was a substitute member of the National Assembly, and a president of the Committee for Finance and Monetary Policy. In 2013, I returned to the Ministry of Finance in the department of tax inspection at Tax Office in Ljubljana.
I was elected member of the City Council of NG 2010-2014. I’m president of the Statuary-legal Commission of the City Council and used to be leader of SDS political group at the City Council before being elected to European Parliament. I was president of the municipal committee of SDS in NG from 2010-2014 and I’m currently its vice-president.
I live with my husband and son in NG. I enjoy hiking, listening to music and singing.
