I took my first paid job at the age of 14, stocking shelves at a construction supplies store, and I’ve been making extensive hands-on experiences in many different companies and organizations ever since. From holding positions in the fields of IT, Education, Journalism and Marketing, from working in the IT Training sector for many years to becoming the Head of E-Learning & Web-Support Center at Ferdinand Porsche FernFH, the Head of Business Development at Quofox as well as the Project & Management Support for the digital transformation at SPAR Academy and the Project Manager of the Future Learning Lab, I am bringing a wide array of experiences to the table. I’ve gained deep insights into varying company cultures, communication processes and (digital) business management.

In each and every case I took/take action based on a personal desire. I'm neither thinking about personal success nor about creating a huge business, but about answering a need, a voice, if you will, telling me to create something novel and making the world a little bit better, especially the education for people from lower-education families, refugees, girls and women as well as people without possibilities.

My passion for learning, technology and social processes led me to work on meaningful projects. Therefore, I founded my own organizations Austrian Edupreneurs (to foster EdTech within educational institutions), Welcomingtours (to foster the integration of refugees in their host countries and reduce prejudices), and co-founded refugees{code}, a coding school for refugees.

These times, professionally, I'm doing research at FernFH where I'm also a remote teacher for End-User Training, Research Methods, Virtual Learning & Working as well as Web-Application & E-Business Security. I also teach Computer Science at a High School, Media Informatics & Machine Learning at FH Joanneum, and hold teacher trainings for different institutions.

Besides that, I write for my PhD at TU Graz in the area of technology & computer-science-ed for social change, especially coding/IT schools for women and marginalized groups. On techshelikes I used to publish experiences and results about my work, mainly in the EdTech sector, before I transformed it into a podcast in which I’m inviting women to talk about their career as well as their role in tech and society.

Additionally, I enjoy music, photography, traveling, snowboarding and spending time to write female portraits on Wikipedia.
