I am trained as a geriatric nurse and I have received my education in nursing management (B.A.) and worked from 2011 to 2016 as a nurse manager in a care home. I started my career as a lecturer in 2014 and completed my Master in Gerontology in 2018 at the University in Nuremberg. After the completion of my master programme I worked for a few years as a teacher in a school for geriatric nurses before I joined the Department of Gerontology in 2020.
I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA).
