I was born 1978 in Zwickau and grew up in the vicinity of the city. Already in my childhood my dream was to work in the medical field. After I completed my high school education I spent a voluntary social year at the DRK nursing home Werdau. Due to the lack of education possibilities in my field of interest, I completed an educational economics program at ‘Praktiker AG’ in Zwickau and worked there until 2005. After a substantial company reconstruction, I decided to once again go to school, this time in Reichenbach at the HANSA College for Economics and Administration where I obtained my advanced technical college qualification in the summer of 2007.
My deep desire to work in the medical field, combined with my knowledge in the world of economics resulted in my application to the ‘Westsaechsischen Hochschule’ in Zwickau. During the following years I studied health management at the Medical and Care Services Faculty. In January 2012 I successfully completed my bachelor with Prof. Dr. Jan-Peter Warnke.
The following years I spend in various interesting, but time limited employments in the region.

As soon as the Vigdis Thompson Foundation was approved by the authorities in 2017 I moved to the foundation. Since then I coordinate, manage and organize all matters pertinent to the functionality of the organization.
