«It often takes more courage to change your opinion, than to remain true to it.»

(Friedrich Hebbel)

 As a native of Zug, with a Matura Type C, I at the age of twenty was magnetically drawn to travel the world. During my language stays in Paris and New York, my interest in culture, people, tourism, and languages began to unfold. Back in Switzerland, it stood to reason to take up a study as a certified tourism specialist HF and to conclude it. During the following years, I had the opportunity to get to know different stages and jobs in the tourism industry. While working for a cultural foundation in Zug, I gained further commercial experience. In 2013, together with my spouse, we decided to take an entirely new step, namely to become foster parents for the foster children campaign in Central Switzerland. Ever since, it has been a great pleasure caring for our lively foster daughter. In addition, I am a board and founding member of the family centre “kindLine” in Unterägeri. As a member of Soroptimist International, I am committed to the needs of women and girls worldwide.

Away from the office, I enjoy our garden and like being in the mountains. It almost goes without saying that travelling continues to be one of my hobbies.

I am especially pleased that, as an office assistant at Grass & Partner, I am now able to support people in change processes.
