Juanita is the newest addition to the AcrossLimits Project Management Team. Graduated from the
University of Malta in Electrical Engineering in 2000, she has built up experience in various areas of
Engineering and Management. Juanita is very looking forward to support the team on EU projects.
She is eager to learn new things, participate in a variety of projects and see them running
Juanita has at heart children education and wellbeing, animal rights, the environment and
innovation. She is called the “Cat woman” by her family and friends as she has 4 cats at home and is
often seen feeding strays around the area where she lives. She loves working with children and
teenagers. She is mostly seen with a big smile on her face (unless she gets up on the wrong side of
the bed that is) and loves networking, socializing and organizing fun events for children and adults
Juanita has a passion for life, family, good food and knowledge. Her hobbies are cooking and
traveling. She is always experimenting in the kitchen to create healthy delicacies for family and
friends. So much so, that a couple of years ago, she started her own “Home made healthy way”
catering business. This was a short entrepreneurship adventure for her, which although quite
successful, could not be sustained long term due to family needs.
Lourdes is the coordinator of Training Malta and organises all courses held at our office. She is always happy to assist participants with dedication and enthusiasm whist also assisting the General Manager with logistics and event planning. Lourdes is a mother of 3, enjoys gardening and is a regular volunteer at the non-for-profit organisation, Caritas Malta which offers a number
free services to better serve the local community.
Digital Agenda and European Policy Consultant
Anna Maria works mostly from Brussels although she is also often zooming around different European countries. She focuses on issues related to digital agenda, education, entrepreneurship and social affairs.
Anna’s background is quite eclectic having been an entrepreneur herself with companies in areas related to business management, environmental services and training. She is also one of the Maltese representatives in Brussels for the Economic and Social Committee, having also been Vice President for Communications of the same institution for a couple of years. Within AcrossLimits she helps in the creation and management of projects whilst doing desk-based research on a multitude of areas.
Anna Maria is a fashion guru. Her style is unmistakable and she favours Italian designers above all others. She is also a commercial skipper and spends lots of time sailing around islands in the Mediterranean and beyond, whilst dreaming up new ideas for a better world.
Kim works on our European projects focusing mostly on those with a social or educational element. Her academic background is European Studies and Law. University taught her to always set up tangible goals and timelines. Kim loves studying, albeit she believes that the greatest lessons are learnt away from the school bench.
Her dissertation, which was based on EU mobility programmes and youth employability, was awarded the Best Dissertation Award in 2016 by the Institute for European Studies at The University of Malta.
A very special experience for her was volunteering in Cambodia. She was part of a team that provided support to the evolving community in order for it to become self-sustained and empowered. This experience has led her to become more aware of the insular tendencies of us Europeans and has made her want to work towards enlightening others of the fact that we do not live in a bubble, and that whatever we do will contribute to a global cycle: both positively and negatively.
Kim is a lover of coffee, with an affinity to travel, poetry, Johnny Cash and good food.
Melissa is the marketing and communications officer for AcrossLimits. She participates in European Projects and is particularly passionate about those which emphasise health, education and community. Her academic background includes a Bachelor in Communications with a focus on Public Relations, as well as a Bachelor in Performance.
Her addiction to travel and food took her from Melbourne, Australia on a European adventure in early 2017. She has since made Malta her home and pastizzi her new addiction! She is often seen keeping the AcrossLimits team entertained with spontaneous office bursts of song and dance which she is adamant is loved by all.
Others interests include music, makeup artistry, animals, food…food…more food, and did we mention – food?

Peter builds video games, mobile applications, web systems and other solutions in a large range of different languages using numerous tools, frameworks and engines.
Away from work, he plays handball, likes gardening, and always smiles before saying something funny!
Since he was a little child Davide was, and still is, fascinated by the possibility to communicate with others, be they humans, animals… or computers! This was in fact the very passion which drove Davide towards the study of programming languages: to be able to “explain” to machines how to bring all the crazy ideas that kept popping up in his brain to life.
Apart from programming, he also loves playing video games, reading, practicing meditation and travelling, thereby continuously increasing his knowledge of different languages and cultures and meeting people from all around the world. Davide is Italian and, on a daily basis, asks one of the team to teach him a phrase or a word in Maltese!
Mark is a graduate in B.Sc. (Hons.) in Computer Engineering with First Class Honours, and is furthering his studies in M.Sc. in Signals, Systems and Control for the year of October 2018 till October 2019. He is slightly shy upon meeting new people, but within a few minutes, he becomes very comfortable around them. He is a team player, and really enjoys working in projects with other people. He enjoys the simple things in life, like music and food. He is eager to learn as he believes that “knowledge is power”. He has a passion for creating and visualizing new concepts that could be used to make lives easier.
Financial and EU Project Consultant
Pierre enjoys financial management, which is daunting to many, but comes naturally to him. He works on putting structure in projects and companies in order to optimise the efficient use of resources
Pierre’s background is varied, spanning telecoms companies, cultural heritage institutions, retail chains and health and educational organisations. He has a serious difficulty in saying no, which is why he ends up with the most challenging projects that sometimes require total restructuring. With AcrossLimits he participates in areas related to business planning and development within projects that deal with primary and tertiary economic sectors.
Pierre is also a born shopper: he enjoys hunting for good quality products whether it’s a sports watch or a tailored suit. He’s an AC Milan fan which means that he gets teased a lot in the office when they do badly (which thankfully for him is not so often!)
