Accounting & Grants Administrator
I was born and raised in Cologne, Germany where I graduated in Business Administration. During my studies, I was offered the opportunity to do a long-term internship in Chicago which sparked my enthusiasm for the United States. After travelling through all of the US my husband and I decided to settle down in Portland, which reminds me of my hometown. Through my experience at GIS I have gained deep appreciation and devotion for the non-profit sector. After transitioning into the finance department last year I have now also taken on German Government reporting and am excited to help the school grow in this role. My passion for learning languages evolved early in my childhood and I am thrilled to pass on the gift of bilingualism at GIS!
