I'm a wife, mother, entrepreneur, marketer and I love to help others. I believe we were all put on this earth for a purpose and to have an impact, no matter how big or small.
My early adult life was defined by my work. Before Better Balance, I worked in technology marketing for 14 years and prior to that I spent 8 years helping MBAs get jobs and internships as a Career Advisor at the McCombs School of Business and a Campus Recruiter for top-tier consulting firms.
I moved to Austin, TX from the Midwest to live somewhere warmer, smaller and quieter, long before it was cool to live here. Twenty years and counting...
I love to travel and explore new places and my dream is to live in Europe for a year.
Most of my career has been focused on helping others (I'm a 2 on the enneagram if you're familiar with that) and now I'm focusing that energy on helping people find their better balance.
The Better Balance concept came to me one night after getting half laid off and wishing we had spent less so I could work less and do a job that I loved. It has fueled my mission to advocate for more part-time professional roles at companies and to help people examine their finances so they can do meaningful work AND have time for the people, hobbies and causes they love.
I am a marketer, consultant, and mother. I like to explain, describe and communicate ideas and bring them to life. That’s why people like to listen to me.
Before Better Balance, I worked in technology marketing for 11 years in the US, Germany, and Dubai. Prior to that, I worked as a Franchise Consultant for a German Car Rental company and traveled the world in order to support and set up Franchise Operations.
Four years ago, I moved to Austin for my husband's job. Hence, the whole family followed to start a new adventure.
We love Austin and we love Texas. And as we also love to travel we have already done a lot of road trips in the US.
When Jill told me about the idea of Better Balance and how challenging it is to find part-time professional roles in the US, I was surprised and very motivated to improve the opportunities for employees to find better work-life balance. I am looking forward to providing employers with suggestions for not only running their company in a customer-friendly manner but also ensuring a high level of motivation among employees.
