Tegan and I have been IG friends for a while now, but this episode was the first time we actually got to speak to each other!

How Tegan helped Jayne with her transition to Sweden
Tegan is originally from Australia, and currently living in London where she lives with her husband and young son. Prior to moving to London in late 2020 she lived in Tokyo, Japan for 18 months with her family after her husband’s company offered him a secondment. She has previously lived in Norway, Scotland and London and loves exploring new countries and areas (when not in lockdown).
After starting her career in the mean big world of politics in Australia which led her from Canberra to the Scottish Parliament to Westminster, she made a career change and started working in corporate affairs for a large international company in Australia and undertook a Master’s degree in Marketing. She now works in the financial services sector in digital communications and marketing and loves being able to recreate dry and regulatory material into compelling online content.
She loves her coffee black, a necessity she adapted to while living in Norway, baking (an expensive hobby in Japan), being outdoors in nature, crime novels and thrillers, travel, minimalism, and loves learning about Japanese simplicity.
