Prior to that, she spent a total of nine years at the Allianz Group in various positions, where she was responsible for global digital transformation projects in a management role, among other things.

Since then, she has been fascinated by the resolution of the tension between old preservation and new design in the interaction between man and machine. As a former competitive athlete, she learned at a young age to view resistance as a challenge rather than a threat and to courageously try out new things.
