Meet the team behind our courses

At Lanterna, we’re all extremely proud of our background and collective experience with the IB. Meet the team who are hard at work, behind the scenes, to put our courses together and help our students succeed.

Sara Zäll
Sara ZällDirector of Operations
Being a third-culture-kid and having attended International Schools, Sara knows all about the struggles of IB. After completing her studies, she’s now joined the Lanterna team to make sure our tutors and courses are the best in the world. When she’s not holding interviews or managing our courses, you can find her visiting her family in Sigtuna, Sweden!
Nanna Helsén
Nanna HelsénDirector of Business Development
Nanna helps Finn do a little bit of everything to help make Lanterna bigger and better with her international experience in sales and marketing. She loves to explore, especially new countries. When time is limited she explores restaurants, TV series, and new local areas together with friends and family (that she is satisfied with and don’t need to replace by exploring new). Just kidding, she loves everyone and everyone loves her!
Julia Aurell
Julia AurellHead of Marketing
Julia has lived in 5 countries before the age of 20, so she is definitely no stranger to travel. This has only made her more determined to see as much of the world as possible! She loves to spend time cliff-diving on the Swedish west coast, when she’s not busy presenting to students and helping them to overcome their IB demons.
Eleanor Roda
Eleanor RodaInternational Marketing Officer
Having lived in England for her whole life, Eleanor is excited to join Lanterna and experience life in Stockholm. As well as her love for the IB (if you know her, you’ll know it’s one of her favourite conversation topics), she adores singing and playing the flute. In her spare time, Eleanor enjoys going for long runs and drinking copious amounts of tea.
Finn Wachtmeister
Finn WachtmeisterCEO
Finn does a little bit of everything to help make Lanterna bigger and better. He joined Lanterna with experience from the international education market, as well as the travel and hospitality industry. Outside of work you might find him cuddling with cows at the farm he is from in Sweden or skiing down a mountain.
