My interest in language and communication led me to study English and Russian languages at the university in Leipzig. In 1984 I got my diploma as translater/interpreter for both languages. After the German reunification I studied business economy and worked in leading positions in various companies over the past 25 years.
During the past 15 years I worked in the real estate industry, as center manager in Dresden, as associate in Property and Asset Management with Cushman & Wakefield LLP and as branch manager Dusseldorf and Head of Letting in Property Management with IC Immobiliengruppe.
Obtaining a certificate as mediator (univ.) after a training at Europäischen Hochschulverbund, Institut für Mediative Kommunikation und Diversity Kompetenz led the foundation for my second career. In March 2017 I obtained the certificate as coach (univ.) of the same institution.
In October 2017 I have got the certificate as Business Softskill Manager after one year of study at Fernuniversität Hagen and a year later, in October 2018, the certificate as Executive Coach. At the end of these two years and after passing the final exams I got the certificate as NLP Master Practitioner der Society of Neuro-Linguistic Programming.
