Early Life

Being driven towards the water and outdoor activities from an early age, she decided to go crab fishing at 14. She was also offered a job from other salmon boats. But, her father decided to get her involved on the family boat, Northwestern, which was built by Mandy’s grandfather Sverre Hansen after his first boat sank in 1977.

In no time, she proved her responsibilities and worth by handling the terrifying accident, of the boat catching fire with patience and thoroughly. In the male-dominated work field, she has handled her job very delicately and also proved her capability.
