She became interested in “sustainable systems” after having worked in the areas of marketing, social development and the promotion of environmental friendly technology early in her career, primarily in Africa and Asia. She then fell in love with Brazil in 2011, and started engaging herself in an agroforestry project in the middle of the Amazon. Over the course of two years, she spent one third of each year in the jungle managing an NGO project, conducting quantitative research under the University of Tokyo on the impact of agroforestry on local household economy, and starting her own business in order to connect the Amazon and Japan. She is continuously trying to establish a sustainable business by utilizing the various strengths of NGOs, corporations and academia.
