Gender equality and developing creative learning systems for the next generation are two issues that I advocate strongly.

Summa Summarum

chalkline divider

I am a multilingual business executive, communications professional and writer with 20+ years of experience in operations and project management in various roles and industries (e.g. entertainment / advertising / non profit / law). Since 2013 I have been the Managing Director of a Single Family Office in Zurich, Switzerland.

I firmly believe in solving problems together and I am an avid supporter of creative collaborations.

Because of my innate curiosity, continued learning and life’s knack for nonlinearity, I have worn many hats in my career including manager, consultant, writer, editor, web designer, founder and fundraiser, among others.

My broad skill-set allows me to manage multi-disciplinary undertakings and to solve complex assignments effectively using a pragmatic approach.

My passion for helping people and creating positive change in their lives and the world, lies at the heart of the Swiss Small Biz Bootcamp.

In that spirit I also donate my time and skills to a select number of non-profit organizations such as the Powerhouse Network for Women,  Helena Frey Foundation for Animal Protection,  Swiss Paleo and The Woolf.
