Meet Karine, our newest family member!
POSTED BY PLAYROOM CEO
Karine Tobiasson Jebsen is our newest Project Manager, and has already taken the role as the most sporty person at our Monday workouts. We’ve asked her some questions so you can get to know her…
What was the first band you ever saw live?
Guns N‘Roses in ´92. I was looking forward to the concert for half a year (and thats a long time when you are 13). I was madly in love with a guy from school and in the middle of November Rain, when we were standing side by side, I fainted (because of the heat not love) and got transported out of the concert area. When I came back, the guy (and of course the moment) was gone and I went home a bit disappointed that the concert didn’t turn out quite the way I wanted.
What is your favorite film?
Notebook. I never get sick of the movie. There’s nothing like two people finding unconditional love.
If you could take one book to a desert island, what would it be?
Desert Island, by myself? I am never alone and if it was up to me (and not the rest of the family) I would love to have someone over at my house every day. But if I have to choose it would be “Broken Paradise” by Cecilia Martin or “The Island” by Victoria Hislop. Two books that really touched me.
What got you interested in Playroom?
I love attending events and I love hosting events. Now I can attend the events I am hosting – and it’s my job. Whats not to love?
What is the best event you have ever attended and why?
I am a lucky girl and have been to many weddings that are truly amazing (so its hard to choose one) – everything from trips to the French Riveria, beautiful Capri and in the snow-filled Norwegian mountains. Each one with a touch of personal elements, lots of love and entertaining that makes you want to dance all night long. Every time I go I want to get married again… to the same man of course!
When you are not organising events, what do you like to do?
I play handball and tennis every week – and that’s so much fun. Except that I spend time with my family (two kids and a husband) and try to meet some friends at least one time a week. I love table settings and have saved hundreds of pictures at Pintrest and Instagram for all occasions.
