“I am originally from the beautiful university town of Münster in northwestern Germany but now call DC home. I have a Master’s degree in English, History and Economics from the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster and certifications to teach both German and English as a foreign language. Languages—and travel—are my passion. I look forward to meeting you!”

“I am from the beautiful Odenwald region in Hessen. Growing up in a small town enticed me to travel all over the world, explore other cultures, and learn as many languages as possible. I ended up studying in Würzburg, Caen/France, and Dartmouth College/U.S. and received my Doctorate from the University in Würzburg in the teaching of foreign languages (Fremdsprachendidaktik).”

“Growing up outside of Philadelphia, I was aware of my German heritage, which influenced my choice to learn German in high school. At 20, I moved to Austria for 8 years before returning to the US to receive my bachelor’s degree in German at Gordon College and my Ph.D. in German Studies at Georgetown University. Since graduating, I have taught at several US universities/colleges and have been teaching at the Goethe Institut since 2015.“
