My deepest wish is to bring full potential to life. I believe that each one of us is here for a particular reason and that we all have a unique purpose. 


My passion is to inspire individuals, families and groups to harness what they are capable of. Empathetic awareness is the key. Only when we explore and work with our thoughts and feelings mindfully, we become closer to our true selves. From here, we can also perceive others more consciously.

As a social entrepreneur, I have focused my work on fostering the precious potential of children from the very beginning. I founded Beginning Well, an organization that supports compassionate care of children in their formative development years up to age three.

I co-founded and managed the Emmi-Pikler-House, a temporary home for neglected babies and toddlers, in Berlin.


My book, Beginning Well - Empathy From The Very Beginning, was published in autumn 2018.


I studied pedagogy, psychology, and art therapy and have worked in human resources for profit and non-profit organizations, in cities across Europe. I now work internationally with individuals and groups on self-awareness and unfolding unique potential. 


I live with my family in San Francisco; love salsa dancing around the globe and sunrise runs wherever I am.
