During her training as an event manager at Messe München, she learned the trade fair business from scratch. Most recently, she was a project manager for the world's leading trade fair productronica and was also responsible for the co-location of Semicon Europa at the fairgrounds.
In February she completed her Bachelor of Science in event and trade fair management.
