I was born in Schwäbisch Hall in 1969 and grew up as the youngest of four children in a musical family in Stuttgart. The cello became my main instrument, which I found under the Christmas tree at the age of 6. To be honest, I would have been happier with a toy back then.
After graduating from high school, I went to Basel and studied music and musicology there as well as baroque cello in Amsterdam at the same time. I pursued high goals. My wish was to become a teacher at university, but this path was denied to me. That is why I completed this phase of my life with a soloist diploma violoncello and, at the same time, reoriented my life with an apprenticeship in Operational Management.
I began my professional restart at SWR in orchestra management. I then moved to SWR Media GmbH as clerk rights and licences, while also working as managing director of the Amadeus Orchestra Stuttgart. In my early 30s I became product manager classical & jazz at Sony Music in Switzerland. I have held other positions, including head of CD/DVD department at Musikhaus Krompholz and headmistress rml.
A three-year part-time psychological training in Transactional Analysis and postgraduate studies in Expressive Arts (Coaching Consulting Therapy) were crucial for my personal and professional development.
In 2009 I founded my company Coaching for Musicians and specialised in stage fright reduction and band coaching. I developed a model that can reduce stage fright within 4 sessions as well as a school of life.
In the next few years I presented my company (Coaching for Musicians & Artists) at several fairs, including the Frankfurt Music Fair, the Freiburg Artists' Exchange, and the Thun Artists' Exchange. At that time I was the first to present myself as an artist coach at a fair. My clients included - besides renowned artists - the German Music Council, the DGfMM, and the Music Academy Basel.
After separating from my long-term partner I fulfilled a long-held wish and emigrated to Cape Town in 2011. Various circumstances led me to return to Stuttgart the following year, where I have lived ever since.
Within a few years, I published four guidebooks. The first two, "Understanding and Overcoming Unemployment" and "Understanding and Overcoming Crises", were published in 2015 and presented at Frankfurt Book Fair. In 2017, the guidebook "How Life Plays – Understanding Life" followed.
Then, at the age of 50, I unexpectedly reached the life level of enlightenment. It was a formative event. I realised that it would change a lot in my life.
Two years later my self-help book "Path to Enlightenment – Simply live happily" was published, and shortly afterwards my Balance Model.
