I treat each individual with respect, appreciation and empathy and value open communication. I always focus on the person in front of me. Based on this, I view the individual and their professional work within the system in order to develop a holistic picture and sustainable strategies.

Thanks to my experience in various areas of life and work, I work at Scienza as an all-rounder in the administrative area as well as a trainer. I combine structured work with friendliness and attentiveness.

As a trainer, I work with groups on topics such as the dissertation phase, project management, gender & diversity and resilience. I am constantly developing and enjoy working on new topics and methods. I support the development of individually tailored and sustainable solutions and strategies that increase the quality of life by consciously prioritizing time and energy. As someone who has experienced the pitfalls, characteristics and freedoms of the academic system myself, I want to support others in navigating this world successfully.
