About me

For more than three decades I have been thrilled to bring people and their stories to life – as an actress and voice artist on stage, in front of a microphone and a camera…


In addition, I started to teach drama students and achieved a certificate in psychodrama and as a BTP-Voice- and Speech-Trainer. As a Speech-Trainer and coach I have discovered my greatest joy in supporting people, whose job it is, to motivate and convince others in conversation, or to inspire them in presentation, speech and storytelling, and help them succeed.


I draw from a wealth of knowledge and methods - BTP, psychodrama, communication psychology, method-acting ... - and from my experience as a teacher, actress, trainer and coach.

I always work with great mindfulness and personal appreciation and with a good dose of humor - laughing is a wonderful diaphragmatic exercise, by the way!
