About me

University graduate in Philosophy, solution-focused systemic coach, counselor as well as professional speaker with profound management experience in communication and organization in international education and science management.


As director of an academic exchange program with the US for many years, event manager at an international research institute, manager of a training program for senior scientists and an EMBA for business executives, I have extensive experience in the scientific and economic sector. In my more than 17 years of professional experience in international institutions I developed an awareness for intercultural factors. I am particularly interested in personal development, facilitating decision-making processes, crisis support, dealing with interpersonal conflicts, application training and expat coaching.
