I am a sociologist, professor, coach, speaker, writer, and leader based in Frankfurt. I conduct, review, and apply research on women in leadership, intergenerational working relations, work and family, academic careers, and international comparative perspectives.
I arrived in Germany in 2002 from the USA and by age 35 I was the first woman in the C-Suite leadership team of my university. I communicate with people of all ages, from thousands of young adult students at the university to top leaders in large corporations.
My strength is to see the big picture, the parts, and how they fit together. When we understand situations, we can use our creativity to change them. I have seen transformation in my own life, in the organizations I have worked with, and I would love to see it for you. When experiencing my talks, workshops, coaching, or consulting, people consistently tell me that they find new ways of looking at things and new pathways forward.
