Our team

dubravka

Dubravka Kolarić Zatezalo, ing. agronomije
Predsjednik uprave

Zaposlenica je u Pins-u od 2019. godine. Rođena je Križevčanka, a svoje srednjoškolsko obrazovanje završila je u Srednjoj gospodarskoj školi u Križevcima. U Zagrebu na Agronomskom fakultetu stekla je zvanje inženjerke zaštite bilja. Čim se za to steknu uvjeti želi dalje nastaviti svoje obrazovanje. Zbog ljubavi došla živjeti u Skrad, a ubrzo se zaljubila i u Gorski kotar.
Najviše voli timski rad, jer različiti članovi tima doprinose različitim idejama, a sinergija između članova tima može proizvesti kreativne i produktivne rezultate. Suradnja sa drugima vam pomaže da više naučite o sebi samoj, ali i o vlastitim snagama i slabostima.
Svoje slobodno vrijeme najviše voli provoditi sa obitelji u prirodi. Voli planinariti, baviti se vrtlarstvom, a najviše ju opušta kuhanje, pečenje kolača i torti.
Najdraži moto joj je da je najbolji način da saznamo što možemo je da mislimo da to možemo napraviti. Sve dok vjerujemo da je nešto nemoguće nikada nećemo moći otkriti je li moguće ili nije.
