«Whatever you can do, or dream, you can begin it.»
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, German poet (1749 - 1832)
Initially I trained as a bank employee. Then, I went on to complete a degree in business administration at the University of Applied Sciences in St. Gallen. After that, I returned to UBS where I assumed the role of a Business Process Engineer, as such I was responsible for managing various projects in the areas of training, organization, and IT.
This was followed, by working for our family-run SME in the electrical sector, where during the course of fifteen years I was responsible for the human resources and finance department, while at the same time juggling the demands of motherhood. During this time, as an entrepreneur, I became familiar with the specific requirements of the Swiss labour market and acquired a profound know-how of human resources.
In 2016, I decided to go into work integration and coaching. Over the span of four years I was deputy managing director as well as case manager working for a social economy enterprise. Throughout, I gained valuable knowledge regarding the integration of people with health-related and personal restrictions. Wanting to learn more, I expanded my know-how with trainings in Supported Employment and Mental Training. Owing to my vast network of professional individuals and my regional foothold, I, together with our clients found individual and focused solutions for them. Working with people in an effective and solution-oriented manner is rewarding and spurs me on.
In 2002, I was appointed to the board of directors of a medium-sized Raiffeisenbank, of which I have been chairwoman since 2006. I enjoy taking responsibility, making decisions and implementing them. My strengths include strategic work and entrepreneurial activity as well as skilful, discreet, and trusting communication with clients, employees, authorities, and the media.
I like spending my spare time in the mountains, be it with family or friends, either hiking, skiing or biking. I love to feel nature and exploring limits.
I look forward to adding my diverse skill set as a coach, manager, businesswoman, networker, as well as an organiser and to dedicate my energy and enthusiasm to you.
