My Story

Linguist, harp enthusiast, classical music lover, thinker, voyager, dreamer, lifelong learner!
Born to a German scientist father and a New Zealand pianist mother, I was raised bilingually enjoying throughout my youth, the beautiful sound of classical music, receiving musical instruction in piano and flute.
After spending a year São Paulo to learn Portuguese and teach German I completed my formal education at Bonn University, Germany, and Pompeu Fabra University, Barcelona, in Anthropology, Oriental Art History and Romance Languages, gaining proficiency in Spanish, and exploring other languages such as Turkish, Arabic and K’ichee’, a Mayan language. Along the way I tutored Latin, English and German. And I loved it, earning my first Master´s degree in 2006. I gained my second Master’s degree in German (as a Foreign Language) at Mainz University, Germany. This equipped me with the theoretical tools to pursue a career in teaching which I followed with teacher training at Sydney University, Australia.
After meeting my future Chilean winemaker husband in France, we moved to Chile to pursue and realise his dream of producing his own high-quality wine.
I focused on raising our wonderful children and taught at Santiago´s campus of the Heidelberg University and the Goethe Institute. After a few years my focus naturally progressed to providing private coaching of students preparing for postgraduate studies in Germany, and executive language coaching for internationally-based German companies. This change of direction enabled me to more closely align my coaching to the individual needs of each client.
Among them I discovered a niche need for diction coaching amongst classical singers and language coaching for musicians wanting to study or work in a German university or orchestra. This enabled me to combine my love for music with my work as a German language Coach.
