While my roots are in Berlin, my consultancy is international.
My passion for traveling, snowboarding and photography has taken me around the globe. I have lived in Scotland, New Zealand, Japan, Canada and Austria for extended periods of time.
I am a member of the German-Japanese Society Berlin e.V. (DJG) and the German-Japanese Business Association e.V. (DJW). This reflects my very special interest in Japan and the Japanese culture.
With my mother being Irish and my father being German/Hungarian, I was brought up bilingual and have equal fluency in English and German. I also speak French and Japanese and am currently learning Irish Gaelic.
I hold a Master of Arts Degree in English Philology, Prehistorical Archaeology and Classical Archaeology from the Freie Universität Berlin, Germany.
I was awarded an Erasmus scholarship for the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, where I enjoyed studying English & Scottish Literature.
During my English Philology, Prehistorical Archaeology and Classical Archaeology studies, it was the human aspect that intrigued me the most. For me this meant that I was always asking myself what was the driving force behind people´s decisions. In other words, I wanted to know what made them tick. I wanted to come to grips and understand their transitioning journeys.
This “digging” aspect of my studies – always wanting to know more –has stayed with me and is ever-present in my coaching. Always curious, always on the lookout for those finds of uniqueness, those indications of something special.
Like a true archaeologist, never satisfied with appearances but always wanting to go deeper and explore the hidden treasures.
As an international Certified Professional Coach (CPC), I work in the field of transition and life coaching.
Being bilingual, I coach both in English and German across different cultural environments with clients coming from all walks of life.
I have worked with international students on intercultural management, leadership & change management and intercultural communication programs.
