Following a degree in Economics from the London School of Economics, Chiara worked in the international division of major insurance broker Willis where she progressed rapidly, latterly opening the office in Milan. She then completely changed sector and worked in the music industry for major and independent labels for five years, focussing on promotion and marketing before managing the Milan office of a privately owned music label. She subsequently worked for an internet company, translating the whole ERP software suite, and continued in the translation sector (mainly legal, finance and fashion) for many years. For a long period, she managed the ECI Network and provided support in its structuring and development. She now works as a consultant in Italy.

Chiara was raised and educated in three different countries and is a true European. She loves travelling, meeting the people and tasting the foods (and wines) of any country. She is kept busy by her family and a dog. '
