As a US-American living abroad for most of my life, Germany has been my home since 2008 with my husband and two children. After completing my Master’s in Anthropology and Cultural Politics at the University of London (Goldsmiths College, 2002), I was able to garner experience in the implementation of projects in different cultural and thematic contexts:
- Migration and asylum (France), 2002-2004, La Cimade
- International criminal law and human rights (Columbia), 2004-2006, Lawyers without Borders France
- Medical treatment (DR Congo), 2008, Doctors without Borders Spain
- Adult education and the integration of migrants in the job market (Germany), 2011-2013, International Alliance Darmstadt
- Agricultural and economic projects for a school (Tanzania), since 2014, Erbacher Foundation
- Non-violent interethnic conflict resolution (Sri Lanka), 1999, Interfaith Fellowship for Peace and Development
- Forestation and forest protection for carbon offsets (Tanzania), 2014-2017, Green Sale GmbH & Co KG
In 2012, I had the opportunity to share my enthusiasm for these issues with young people in my role as Seminar leader for the German civil volunteer program.
I have been working as a freelance consultant for international projects and as a trainer for Global Education since early 2017.
