The Improviser’s Mindset In Leadership

I am a learner. I travelled over 35 countries worldwide. I love sports. I am skilled in arts and culture. I have a passion in technology and science. And further the interests of women in technology.

Extra-Professional Activities

Outside of work, I enjoy individual and team sports. Specifically, I am making 7,000 kilometres road bicycle racing per year. I have also captained my rugby team of the University of Passau to local-league championship.

I travelled and worked as a digital nomad in more than 35 countries globally. I backpacked the word and hopped-on-and-off flights, cities and even countries every second day.

I have an outstanding artistic ability and was Vice President of the French drama group at the University of Passau.

Exposed to Entrepreneurship and Innovation

I was born and raised in an entrepreneurial family and exposed to entrepreneurship and innovation from an early age. I started off as a class representative and tutor in mathematics, chemistry, and physics at the Natural Sciences Gymnasium. I continued as a Teaching Assistant in Multivariate Statistics at Sciences Po Grenoble. I push myself to grow outside of my comfort zone by completing the AWS Cloud DevOps Engineer Nanodegree. I act as public speaker about Cloud computing, Fintech, Blockchain, Cryptocurrency and Cybersecurity. And I believe in the ability of technology to change the world for women who strive to achieve greatness.

Further Interests of Women in Tech

Therefore, I further the interests of women in the tech industry to make a significant impact by driving change across the industry. I am focus on hiring, developing, and retaining women in tech at all stages of their careers, within Mastercard and in the tech industry.

I want to change the world one technological achievement after another.
