Personal note:

As an award-winning leadership development consultant with over 10 years of experience as a female leader in the engineering industry, I offer a unique perspective on how to build emotionally intelligent and courageous leaders and strengths-based team cultures.

I am passionate about driving diversity and supporting women in a leadership career in the Engineering and Tech sector.


After over 15 years of living, learning and training in the world of STEM, business and academia, I founded Lead Like YOU! – my Leadership Development Practice in 2019. Since then, I've worked with many different organisations and individuals in both the public and private sectors as part of a variety of programs based on the Lead Like YOU! Framework.

As a leadership expert, I am passionate about driving a leadership revolution. My mission is to change workplace cultures to increase engagement and bring more diversity and emotional intelligence into engineering organisations – the key to future-ready organisations.

I bring a unique perspective driven by my international work and life experience, and my experience as an engineer and female leader in STEM.

I am a certified CliftonStrengths, Emotional Intelligence and NLP Coach & Facilitator, and hold a Bachelor's and Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering and Management.
I bring over 12 years of experience in workshop and training facilitation.

On a more personal note, I am bilingual in English and German, a dual citizen of Australia and Germany, a mother of two boys, and a singer. Also, a coffee drinker and sushi lover.

After living and working abroad for 12 years, my family and I have just relocated back to Germany. I am excited to support emerging leaders, teams and organisations in Germany and Europe and continue to create a more diverse and human-centred world.
