Eeva Flinkman has worked in a mountain millieu in two separate periods. Life lead her to Kakslauttanen in 2014 as an office secretary. Now she works permanently as a marketing assistant for Inari-Saariselkä Matkailu Oy.

She had gained prior experiense on the tourism industry by working in sales for an Irish Golf Resort and an airline in Copenhagen, and for a congress office in Helsinki. She is originally from the Helsinki metropolitan area.

Eeva is extremely happy of her life in the northern landscape. She has much appreciation for it. Work can be very hectic at times, but it’s easy to recover from it when you don’t have to sit in traffic and queue for ages in a supermarket. During free time, it’s really easy to head off to the  skiing tracks or hiking trails.

-The vast nature inspires creativity. Here you have time and space to listen to yourself and others. You can focus on the essentials when there’s no chaos and hustle from the environment, and no external stimuli for the senses, she says happily.

Living arrangements were easily set by the municipal services. Moreover, you can find all the necessary services from Ivalo. Eeva regards her work as versatile. She is in contact with different kinds of coworkers and partners.

She finds it rewarding to market a product that she strongly believes in. Her earliest memories from Saariselkä are from the Christmas holidays and skiing trips of her teenage years in the 80s with her parents. The Lappish charm carries through generations. That is certainly true in her life as well.
