Justina spent her childhood in Lithuania divided between Vilnius, the capital, and her family’s cabin tucked away between lush Lithuanian forests. Growing up surrounded by nature taught her to understand that our fragile ecosystems need protection.
While earning a bachelor’s degree in textile design from Gerrit Rietveld Academie, her work mostly focused on recognizing, deconstructing, and reconstructing data, and then communicating it in visual systems. She then acquired management skills while working at various retail businesses.
Justina joined Metabolic after discovering how detrimental to the environment retail businesses are. At Metabolic, she works towards implementing systems thinking and sustainable practices in the office environment, striving for a fully circular office in Amsterdam.
In her free time, Justina is hiking, bouldering, playing video games, and reading fantasy books.
