Personal note:

Through my work as a speaker and facilitator, I want to create a spark in people – a belief that everyone is perfect in their imperfections. Each and every one of us has the potential for greatness.

We all deserve to be seen and celebrated for our strengths and unique contributions to society. I believe that what makes you unique, makes you powerful.


After over 15 years of living, learning and training in the world of STEM, business and academia, I founded Lead Like YOU! – my Leadership Development Practice in 2019. Since then, I've worked with many different organisations and individuals in both the public and private sectors as part of a variety of programs based on the Lead Like YOU! Framework.

As a leadership expert, I am passionate about driving a leadership revolution. My mission is to change workplace cultures to increase engagement and bring more diversity and emotional intelligence into engineering organisations – the key to future-ready organisations.

I bring a unique perspective driven by my international work and life experience, and my experience as an engineer and female leader in STEM.

I am a certified CliftonStrengths, Emotional Intelligence and NLP Coach & Facilitator, and hold a Bachelor's and Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering and Management.
I bring over 12 years of experience in workshop and training facilitation.

On a more personal note, I am bilingual in English and German, a dual citizen of Australia and Germany, a mother of two boys, and a singer. Also, a coffee drinker and sushi lover.

After living and working abroad for 12 years, my family and I have just relocated back to Germany. I am excited to support emerging leaders, teams and organisations in Germany and Europe and continue to create a more diverse and human-centred world.
