educational innovator, educator, former School founder, kinesiologist, founder of Education in Transition 

I led the Schwabing e.V. children's home as an educator for almost 10 years. For years I experienced how young people are driven by their natural curiosity. During my training as a Three In One Concepts Consultant Facilitator, I learned a lot about the causes of stress and gained deeper insights into what prevents us humans from living our abilities and thus developing our potential. For several years I ran a practice for school stress management, conflict resolution and potential development in Munich. When I first came into contact with Sudbury Schools, I was thrilled. Self-determined education within a community is implemented here consistently, clearly and with heart.


During my nine years of volunteer work as a founding member of a Sudbury school in Bavaria, I lectured about Sudbury schools and supported the democratic education movement in many ways.

An educational field trip to eleven different democratic schools worldwide (mostly Sudbury schools) strengthened me on my path. Immersing myself in practice gave me a real-life approach and a realistic perspective on all the challenges, difficulties, opportunities and successes. In September 2014, after nine years of existence, the Sudbury School Ammersee. From the beginning of the school opening, I worked with a lot of passion as an employee at this school. For the 2016 school year, the government of Upper Bavaria closed the school, which the provider considered unfair and unlawful.

After the closure, I ran a forest kindergarten in Dießen am Ammersee for over 3 years.

In fall 2020 I started a high-performance leadership training and founded my own company Education in Transition.


Today I use my knowledge, skills and experience to support the urgently needed change in our education system in a variety of ways.
