After a BSc in Business Law, postgraduate studies in the field of economic crime investigation, and many years of work experience in and out of the financial industry, I decided to focus more on my lifelong passion for people and their stories. I went on to study vocational and career counseling at the Institute of Applied Psychology (IAP) in Zurich, Switzerland and was last employed as a career counselor for the canton of St. Gallen. Today, I work as a self-employed career counselor and consultant, which enables me to work with my clients in a more long-term and comprehensive way. The combination of my diverse work experience, both in Switzerland and abroad, and my professional education in career counseling is something that defines my services and what I use to the benefit of my clients every day.
