Oli help’s team is made up of an eclectic group of professionals who care for a more inclusive future.
Valeria has built her career in the private and public sector on the back of her ability to deliver creative solutions and to build high performing teams. Her passion for technology brought her to Thoughtworks, after extensive hands-on product management and digital transformation experience. At the EBRD in London she held several leadership positions focusing on social and economic change. While change features prominently in her CV, it was her personal experience of behavioural change necessary to support her son that inspired her to create Oli help. Valeria holds an MPA from Columbia University and the London School of Economics.
