Kia ora, I was born and raised in Germany before moving to New Zealand in 1991 where I immediately fell in love with this beautiful country and settled in quickly.
I completed my ECE training in Germany and worked in German Kindergarten’s for 7 years before coming to New Zealand.
In New Zealand, I have worked as a nanny, teacher aide in a private kindergarten and as an early childhood teacher in three childcare centres in Hamilton, before starting at Central Kids Dinsdale Early Learning Centre in March 2020.
What I like about my job is that every day is different with its own unique, joyful moments, exciting experiences, different needs and challenges. I have met a lot of great people over the years and watched children grow up into beautiful and curious individuals.
Outside of work, I love spending time with my sons and meet up with friends for dinner, movies and socialising. I have two adult sons, both born here, and go home to Germany regularly to see family and friends.
I have a little garden, where I love to spend time – either working in it or sitting back and relaxing. A trip to the beach is a sure way for me to really relax and unwind, all year round.
