Hiring an assistant is a matter of trust so below I am telling you a little more about myself – professionally and personally.
My professional background
After my Post Graduate Degree in Tourism & Business Administration in 2005 I have gained experience in various industries from Tourism over HR Consulting to IT, within different sizes of companies from SME, to Start-up, an NGO during my sabbatical and the last 5 years in a Global Corporation. After over a decade of experience as an Executive PA, I decided in 2019 that it was time to take my skills and “go virtual”. I started my own business to now offer my services to a variety of clients while living and working location independently. As a Native German who is fluent in English, has lived and studied in different countries and has worked for multinational companies, I can offer my services in English and German or translate between these two languages.

Together we can develop ways of how I can take over the tasks that slow you down, keep you busy and stop you from becoming even more successful. I’d love to have your back, cheer you on and structure the admin side of your business according to your values, goals and vision.
Values shape relationships – with friends, family, clients and service providers. As your VA I see myself as a partner and supporter of your business. I value transparency, honesty and trust. As you share details of your business, your vison and challenges I’d like you to feel valued and know the information you share is safe with me. I strive to foster a relationship where both of us can grow, learn and develop together and have lots of fun along the way.

My personal background
If you would like to know a bit more about the person behind the business, here are some random facts about myself. Feel free to ask me if you’d like to know more about one or the other.
I currently live in Leipzig, Germany and Hurghada, Egypt – traveling between both locations every few months.
I took a sabbatical in 2014 and spent several months in Cape Town, South Africa, volunteering part time for an NGO, slowing down and doing what my heart longed for.
I love books, could spend hours in book stores and hardly ever make it out there without buying another one. I dream of having my own little library one day with cozy arm chairs, fire place and all.
I am a nomad at heart and have lived in various locations inside and outside Germany – Munich, Stuttgart, the Frankfurt area as well as West Virginia, Bangkok and Cape Town.
I have been an exchange student in Elkins, West Virginia at the age of 16 … city girl going country roads.
I became a Christian only at the age of 29 – best decision I have ever made and a whole story on it’s own.
I love to hear people’s stories – where life has taken them, their dreams and lessons learned. So many treasures to be found in each individual story.
As Life Coach I support women in change processes e.g. after a separation, counsel them in questions of life & faith and help them find their individual way. Find out more here.
I have danced for about 20 years – mainly Jazzdance and Modern Dance but even a bit of Flamenco, Salsa and Oriental. Even though now I don’t do it semi-professionally anymore, in my heart I am still a dancer.
