I have been experiencing new social and cultural contexts for 25 years. Since my studies I have been working in and with international and diverse teams. Stations of my life were 6 cities, 4 countries, 3 continents. I grew up in Bremen, for my studies I first moved to Dresden, then to the Ruhr area. There I also gained my first professional experience. From there, for professional reasons, I went to Zurich, Amman, San Francisco and after six years abroad back to Germany, to Berlin.
In 2017 I decided to switch from part-time self-employment to full-time self-employment. This allows me to perfectly combine my interests and skills. Since I first started teaching German in 2007, I have noticed how important it is to me to work with people, to offer new chances and perspectives by taking new steps.
I have experienced myself how learning a new language definitely opens up a new world, but “only” linguistically. Communicatively, so much more takes place on many different levels, verbally, but also non-verbally and in various nuances. In order to close this gap, it was helpful for me to look back at my university subjects sociology and social psychology with a focus on social interaction and communication. Even in art history, my focus was already on perception theories and psychological aspects. My further training courses to become an intercultural trainer, coach and mediator have thus shown me ways to combine my personal experiences with the knowledge I need to use this combination in a meaningful way.
Therefore I am pleased to be able to offer you qualified and professional support.
