For over 25 years I have been a full-blooded tourism specialist with heart. The birth of my professional passion took place in 1989 with an internship at Atlas Reisen in the event sector. I was gripped by the fever and after my apprenticeship as a travel agent I gradually gained a reputation with renowned tour operators and incoming agencies at home and abroad. Today my expertise ranges from package tours to luxury and from product management to marketing and sales.
My suitcase is always packed because I am simply fascinated by travel, people, nature, architecture, art and culinary delights. At home I am in Cologne, Cape Town and Munich and all 3 hearts beat in my chest:
“Et kütt wie et kütt”, “Mia san mia” and “Hakuna Matata”.
I am entrepreneur & manager, daughter & godmother, visionary & optimist, friend & consultant.
In my private life I refuel best by cycling along the Isar, meeting friends in the Belgian Quarter and hiking on Table Mountain. I like to laugh, I am curious, passionate and self-critical.
