Everything starts with People! This was my inner driver when I started my journey in the People function, and since then I have been professionally pursuing my passion for a people-centric path for more than 20 years.​

As a People leader and trusted sparring partner with a proven track record at local and global levels with a focus in Life Sciences and Management Consulting, I enjoy working and guiding with enthusiasm, energy and a value-added mindset through business-relevant and solution-oriented approaches in all areas of the People Cycle, both at strategic and operational levels.​

Another passion lies in my work as an Artist. My art is about emotional power, expressing flow and movement in colors and shapes through action painting. Numerous experiences and insights from the process of creating art embrace commonalities in business life, such as deciding or letting go at the right moment, being curious and creative and releasing mental flow for better interventions.​


As a consultant, I like to combine my experience and knowledge from both professional fields to develop customized solutions and best practices for my clients. Additionally, there is no one size fits all offering, therefore it is essential to have a comprehensive understanding of the client’s business, opportunities, and challenges. Quality, integrity and simplification are at the heart of my consulting work.​

I firmly believe that “people can make a real difference”. That’s why, when looking for talents, I always try to understand why a candidate would want to take on exactly that job and join my client’s company. Besides knowledge, experience and skills, the right attitude and mindset of a candidate are equally important, because People can only perform at their best if they fit into a company’s culture.
