I graduated in 2012 from the IFBC and luckily right afterwards I got a position as trainee in the german national programme SÖL (Stiftung Ökologie & Landbau) at IMO - Institut für Marktökologie GmbH in Konstanz.

After my trainee time I remained in the company within the Social and Fair Trade Department. Since the beginning of 2017 I took over the responsibility as Certification Operations Manager at the same department where I take care of the smooth certification process of all our certified projects.

Nach Abschluss des IFBC in 2011 arbeitete ich für ein Jahr in London als Account Manager bei einem großen Zulieferer/Händler von Rohstoffen und Lebensmittelzutaten (Saaten, Vitamine, Aromen, Säfte, etc.).

Seit 2013 arbeite ich im Vertrieb der Ceralia Getreideprodukte GmbH in Mühldorf am Inn, ein mittelständischer familiengeführter Betrieb, der sich auf die Abpackung von Bio Getreide- und anderen Trockenprodukten in Endverbraucherverpackungen für Private Label spezialisiert hat. Es macht mir jeden Tag große Freude, unsere Kunden aus dem Lebensmittelhandel sowie von namhaften Bio Marken zu betreuen und Neuprodukte von der Produktidee bis hin zur Auslieferung an die Märkte zu begleiten.
