She was born in Bochum at the heart of the Ruhr area and grew up in Recklinghausen. After finishing high school, she moved to her favorite city Hamburg and studied Applied Media Management at the European Media and Business Academy. After several practical stints, among others in the press department for a renowned top-league German soccer club and German public television broadcaster ZDF, she tried out a new and very pink world: the world of the textschwester(s). Even though her view of things was somewhat different, she felt very much at home in the trendy lifestyle world right from the beginning. This is how an internship turned into a PR trainee program. As PR manager, she is now available for all of textschwester’s clients also for emergency operations.
At a young age, the born and bred Düsseldorf girl ended up in the city of “weißwurst” breakfasts – Munich, where, after finishing high school, she completed her studies in Applied Media Management with a focus on PR and Communication Management. With her position at one of Germany’s biggest advertising film productions, she dived deeply into the world of the media. Her path led her from Munich via Vancouver to Paris. Subsequently, the cheerful Rhinelander reemerged in her old hometown Düsseldorf, filled to the brim with lots of experience from the PR, film and advertising sector. Now she only packs her bags for the Textschwester Special Operation Squad and otherwise is available in the Textschwester OR as PR manager.
