More about me



My background comes from a change support specialist's role at business coaching and sales company. I have a bachelor’s degree in Hospitality Management, and I have gained international work experience in my career. I found my passion towards coaching originally from digging into the potential of my colleagues: one of them noticed my potential and suggested me to train myself as a certified coach, and that is how the journey began for me.


In my free time I enjoy music and playing the piano, movies and exercising in various ways. I originate from the countryside of Finland where I go to rest my mind and body regularly.

What makes you light up?

When people have the courage to be original and true to themselves. That is when they thrive in their professional and personal lives. In addition to that, seeing growth and progress is something that really excites me. I think that growing, evolving, expanding, learning and bonding is what we are born here to do. We just sometimes need to be reminded of the most important things for us.


How would you describe yourself as a coach?

I am curious, exciting and a hands-on type of coach. I have a creative way of thinking and I am an attentive listener. I tend to see opportunities and possibilities in situations and people I encounter with, and I feel like that gets transmitted to the people I coach. My superpower is motivating people and teams into working towards the goal or solving the problem. When working with a team, I make everyone in the group feel acknowledged and encourage each person to participate in the work.


What do your colleagues say about Inka?

Inka adds a spark of light in the room and the things she works with. She is a curious person and coach who is constantly hungry to learn more!
