In English


I am Helen, a 37-year-old woman who lives in Koivukylä, Vantaa. I work as an assistant to a member (Antti Häkkänen) of the Finnish Parliament. Previously I have been an assistant also to MP, Mrs. Sari Sarkomaa and MP, Mr. Heikki Vestman.

As a person I am an extrovert, co-operative, and ambitious woman with a good sense of humor. I have done voluntary work in different organizations, but also worked for example as a saleswoman in a clothing store. I have experience from different positions in the field of politics. I am, for example, a vice member of the city council of Vantaa. 

I did my master´s thesis in biosciences. My major was genetics and I did research for my thesis in a group that studies neuronal developement in the midbrain.

All the work I have done in my life has taught me the ability to work effectively under pressure and hurry. I am also used to working with very different kinds of people. I am a great team player.

In politics and in everything I do, my sources of motivation are very much alike. I want to listen, learn and make things better. It truly inspires me if I can help other people and affect positively a person´s life.

In my free time, I love spending time with my 7-year-old daughter and in a wide range of organizational activities. For example, I am the chairperson of the local association MLL Korso-Koivukylä ry, of the Mannerheim League for Child Welfare (MLL). Our association is one of the biggest local associations in Finland.

"Helen was my assistant in the parliament for many years. She is a smart team player and gets things done. She has the sense and sensibility - "head and heart" that are needed in the politics."

Member of the Finnish parliament
