Re-connecting Nature, Money and Community 

About Me

As a social enterpreneur, I live my dream to co-create projects to re-connect nature, money and community. As a speaker and moderator, I fascilitate events and processes that enable the transitions towards a value- and needs-based paradigm. 

After graduating from environmental natural sciences at ETH Zürich in 2004, I entered the corporate world and worked in consulting as Head of Renewable Ressourcesas and as Head of Corporate Sustainability of a Swiss Private Bank.

In 2010 I graduated with a Master of Advanced Studies in Business Communication and I decided to “change side” and work for an NGO to translate sustainability into the finance sector. I have worked with many financial institutions and financial market regulators.

Since 2014 I am lecturing at the Institute of Banking and Finance at University of Zurich.

I work with people that want to be part of the transformation that re-connects us to each other and to nature and that share my passion to develop new ways to organize society, business, money, and finance.

I believe that change will not come from organizations, business standards or political agreements but it comes from us, from people that live and work in alignment with our values.

People I work with

Co-Creating  fields for change   

I am passionate about the human capacity to regenerate ecosystems even in areas that are deeply affected by soil degradation and water scarcity.

With my recent work in Switzerland and Southern Europe, I am weaving together experiences, knowledge, inspiration and the flow of money:

  • To allow us to dream the regeneration of ecosystems and baring economic and cultural structures

  • To be curious and adventurous, share experiences and learn from each other

  • To encourage people from different regions and rural areas to do visionary work and co-create more resilient communities

It is my passion to moderate events and processes that create a field of inspiration and appreciation that allows participants to go beyond pre-determined statements and thoughts.

During my journey of understanding the interconnections between nature, money and finance, I have been publishing or contributing to publications.
