My passion

…Learning – in addition to this being my profession, I am personally also always learning something new – through training, reading (I love books!) or coaching and mentoring. My favourite topics are personal development, philosophy, leadership, yoga, mindfulness, meditation, health. In addition to these themes, you can also make me very happy with interior design, aesthetics of hotels, restaurants and coffee spots, sports and discovering new places (in addition to my love for Asia, where I lived for a few years – I also embarked on this adventure:

My inner purpose: My purpose is to ignite growth mindsets through unconditional compassion. I am on earth to strengthen the connection between leadership in organizations, the consciousness awakening from the yoga world and the neuroscience of mindfulness. With a strong belief in personal growth, learning, reflection, authenticity and compassion, I help others to discover and be the best version of themselves, so that we can work and live in a more deeply connected, more aware, more sustainable and beautiful world.
