Simone Junod was born and grew up in the French part of Switzerland, in Jura, with eight siblings.
After obligatory school and an apprenticeship in finance, she graduated from the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland as Business Economist HWV.
Along her career path as Chief Financial Officer and Finance Director, she kept training herself, also in areas outside her professional path. Understanding where we come from, what we are here for as human beings have always been her passion.
Growing up she and her family lost several young family members. Losing her sister had an immense transformative effect on her and led her to explore completely new disciplines, including energy medicine and the wisdom of traditional cultures - at which point she uncovered her high sensitivity and intuitive competencies.
Continuous learning, transferring over knowledge and coaching people to deploy their highest potential or to rediscover complete well-being are part of the vision that has materialized with the creation of Athena Wisdom Institute AG.
She is a certified business and management coach & counselor (CAS/ECA) and wisdom teacher.
