Marjo Miinalainen


"We have to take care of them who raised us."

I am 54-years old, native from Oulu. At the moment I work as a part time consultant in the projects of recruiting health care workers from the Philippines to Finland. I also do voluntary work for the Alzheimer Society of Finland and act as an guardian of interests of my mother.

My education are among others eMBA and artisan. I have lived and worked around Finland and world. During my 25 years work experience as a supervisor in the multicultural working environments and among different cultures have been very fruitful and I have got possibility to make decisions and act for helping other people.

My hobbies are outdoor activities, sports, reading and handcrafts.

I stand for the regional elections, because I feel that with my experience I have possibility to bring practical perspective to the new welfare organization. Elderly care and primary healthcare are near my heart.
