I was born and raised in Iceland and have lived there apart from five and a half years that I spent in the US. I finished a BSc degree
in physical therapy in 1989 and worked as a PT for over 20 years.
I graduated with a master’s degree in Health sciences in 2007.
My thesis focused on smoking and musculoskeletal problems.
In 2010 I finished an Executive master of public health (EMPH).
I work as a project manager in the field of health.
