I got my MBA from NYU Stern School of Business and am a Certified Co-Active Life Coach (CPCC). 

In total, I have more than 16 years of professional experience. I started off in corporate finance working for Siemens in New York, USA, and Procter & Gamble in Geneva, Switzerland. At Procter, I discovered my love for moderating workshops resulting in clear and aligned action plans and facilitated strategic revenue management or competitive response modeling workshops.

I then moved into management consulting and joined Horvath in Zurich, Switzerland. I led  projects on project controlling, digitalization or finance transformation and truly enjoyed accompanying my clients all the way from project inception to go-live. I worked with all kind of clients ranging from medium sized companies to international players within media, energy, insurance and more. 

I took a break from consulting and founded a platform startup from scratch and learned a lot about innovation, lean startup, digitalization, digital marketing, launching a business, and more

Long story short, I moved back into management consulting focusing on project management office and project leading, first for international financial institutions and then within automotive. I set up the structures for the project, moderate meetings and workshops and hold the team accountable to the deliverables. A personal connection is essential to truly motivate and empower the team members to commit and engage in the project. It's all about team work! This way, I turn the teams's expertise into insights to deliver the project in line with expectations. 

During covid, I also had a very important personal insight: I wanted to learn the tools to truly empower my clients and help them tap into their full potential when faced with tough challenges to lead fulfilled lives. This is why I decided to become a co-active life coach. 

And yes, I do both my consulting and coaching with lots of energy, compassion and a smile ;)
