Susana Costa, 46 years old, is the marketing director of Lectra Portugal, where she has been working for 21 years. Born in Porto, she traded the Invicta city for the coastline of Aguda, but the traffic jams pushed her back North. Now she is living in Maia, very close to the Porto’s airport and 10 minutes away from work. Graduated in Marketing Management from IPAM, she is married with three children – Márcia, 17; Tiago, 9; and Alexandre, 7 –, has a dog (Happy) and a cat (Crazy) who live up to their names. In her free time she likes the sun, music and barbecue parties with her friends.
