Tell us who you are!
My friends would tell you I am a life-affirming person who believes in the good into the world and people. I have an open heart and say directly what I think in a benevolent way. In order not to lose sight of the goal, I like to work structured and organized.
I would say: to be focused all the time is great, but sometimes I´m not in the right direction. For new creative ideas and inspiration I am looking in different ways. One could be to let the soul dangle and trust in my intuition. I like to be creative and try out things that make my life more beautiful.

What does “Social Capital” mean to you?
For me, social capital means having a certain life setting. This is based on a trusting trust in yourself and its environment and on mutual support. You should like to give what your abilities and competences are and also accept what others mean and according to which they act. It means that you should know who you are and have a good relationship not only to yourself, but also to other people.
What is/has been your biggest achievement professionally and personally?
Professionally: I supported people to find their own way in different steps and positions. One of the biggest is the development and implementation of the HR strategy for Germany. My favored success is the development and implementation of a tool for a one year-program for personal development of people.
Personally: I had many big points in my life – the biggest with the most changed impact to my life was the birth of my son. Other is to organize my own development – in connection with a full-time job and my family.
What skills, experiences or incidences helped you to get you to where you are today? What hindered?
Acquired abilities and experienced experiences belong to the past and present. I am curious to learn new skills and to make new experiences. My curiosity to try things out and believe that you can learn all your life.
People who prefer to see problems rather than solutions. I find it difficult to accept limits.

Do you believe there is a glass ceiling for young female professionals? If yes, how can we break it?
I don´t think so. If you think so, please change your mind, believe in yourself and break your roles. If you have this charisma, you will reach what you want.
