Her mother, Ingalil, came to the island as a tour guide in 1963 from Sweden, and the following year, her husband Bengt arrived to work as a destination manager for a Scandinavian tour company.

“Basically, this is the place for me knowledge of horses It comes from!” she says. “Later I started my career as a veterinarian in Queensland, Australia. I spent two wonderful years there with my husband. Australia was a dream come true! One of my favorite countries of all time. All the wildlife and scenery was everything I dreamed of! But although she was very beautiful, she was too far from family in Mallorca, so I continued my studies and finished my degree at the Autonomous University of Barcelona. After that I returned to the island and at that time became the mother of two wonderful children, the happiest days of my life! ”
