As a process facilitator, I support groups and individuals with questions of sustainability, transformation and systemic innovation. Through workshops and training sessions, counseling and mentoring conversations, as well as through impulses in speech and writing, I encourage people to actively contribute to shaping the change towards a sustainable future. I enable spaces for reflection, dialogue and the joint development of new perspectives and strategies for sustainable transformation.
For almost 15 years I have been driven by curiosity and the will to contribute to the pressing questions of our time. What can a just, sustainable future look like? Which societal transformation processes are required that can realistically be achieved? What paths do we as a society, as individuals, as organizations and groups have to take now in order not to continue to live at the expense of others?
Through my own learning journey, I have had the privilege of exploring these questions and building my expertise. A selection of the stations that have shaped me and enabled me to support processes of others today:
> Bachelor in Business Administration in Leisure Management (Netherlands and Santiago de Chile)
> Co-founding a social enterprise (Mekipee, 2009 - 2013)
> Project management at Viva con Agua eV, BAUM eV, (Hamburg), Klimahaus Bremerhaven
> Master of Science in Strategic Leadership for Sustainability (Karlskrona, Sweden)
> Program management in a social business incubator (Zurich, Switzerland)
> Accompaniment of change processes in SMEs (part-time, temporarily employed)
> Continuous training on state-of-the-art methods and approaches to strategic sustainability, co-creation, facilitation, systemic innovation
> International network , including membership in the Climate KIC Network of Coaches, Masters of Strategic Leadership towards Sustainability Alumni Network, etc.
Today I don't know all the answers to the pressing questions of our time, but I know how to design spaces and dialogues that help us to find answers together.

As a facilitator, I create and maintain space for reflection, exchange, and the development of ideas and strategies in groups and teams.
Using approaches such as Systems Leadership, I support leaders in navigating the complex challenges of our time.
I see my role as a sparring partner and companion.
I raise questions, the answers of which we explore together.
Encouraging new perspectives and empathy
In workshops, I support others in taking new perspectives, thereby promoting a spirit of innovation and a sense of community.

I accompany groups in co-creative processes to go new ways through different perspectives.
