Businesswoman, Psychopedagogue, Wellness coach, and Founder of Women on Business
After living an important fragment of my life in different parts of the world, I thank much of my story to Chile, France and Venezuela, my native country, in which I finally landed at age 14.
You can imagine how many “bones” I left scattered along the way ...
My life has always been linked to education, my root profession is psychopedagogy, although life invited me to walk in other roads and I am co-founder of my husband’s business linked to the construction industry. Until today I have served as its general manager leading work groups at different levels and areas in the company.
For 15 years I practiced my original profession working in parallel as a language teacher for children from one and a half years old to nine. One of the most exciting and rich stages of my life.
Dr. Eline Pedersen
Doctor of Chiropractic
Honoris Cause Doctorate of Humanity” specialising in Leadership (AUGP)
Initiator and President of NGO “Birth Forward”, Human Rights Ambassador
Dr Eline Pedersen fundamentally believes in nature’s way of adapting to every aspect of life. As a wellness family chiropractor she studies what she has named the individual’s “HQ” or ‘Health Quotient”. The “Health Quotient” is a measure of an individual’s adaptive state of health, based on their physical, emotional and chemical well-being, within the individual’s epigenetic and environmental context. This fits perfectly with the philosophy of chiropractic - that healing is an innate action, which happens from within and that the body is a self-healing organism.
Having this in mind, and studying the work of Dr Michel Odent, where he concludes that the most critical time in life affecting our physical and mental health, is the moment of birth, Eline passionately devoted her work and personal life, on making a human being’s birth time the beginning of a well lived healthy lifetime, close to the way nature intended it to be. She believes we have the responsibility to protect the first breath of each new born child, to grow into a fearless, integrated, connected and healthy adults.

I love to travel and explore new countries and connect with the different people around the world. I think that every country has its own beauty and every person is unique and beautiful I am living in Bahrain from 2009. How I ended up in this beautiful island, has also its own story. My very first visit to Bahrain was by chance! I had a four-hour stopover in the kingdom. At the time my knowledge about Bahrain was very limited, so to get to know the place I decided to take a quick tour, grabbed a taxi from the airport and drove around. I don’t know what happened exactly, but could definitely tell, I fell in love with the country the first moment I landed in. Deeply I felt that would be my place, where I would love to come back and stay for a while. I returned in 2009 for one month. After that I couldn’t leave the island anymore and I have been living in Bahrain for more than ten years.
