About Me

Who Am I?

Born and raised in a small Austrian town called Graz, I first thought about nutrition when my 3 older brothers started to tease me for my adolescent body. Like so many young girls, I found myself thinking a lot about food, dieting and working out. Thinking of the teenage me today, I am grateful that I wouldn’t let my brothers’ words push me towards an unhealthy relationship with food.

Somehow I made it through high school, moved to the cultural center, Vienna, and eagerly tested my independence in college. I knew right from the beginning that I had a certain talent for all kinds of communication and rushed through my undergrad studies in Journalism and Communications. I deeply enjoyed to learn about and professionally work in marketing, public relations and market research but felt that it was not enough. So I started my dietetics studies focusing on nutrition and food marketing. And I’ve been working in this field ever since.

Being very active with a tight training regimen (muay thai kickboxing, yoga, strength and conditioning, tennis, windsurfing and scuba diving) while working full-time as a professional, I am always looking for ways to improve my physical performance, energy balance and optimize my nutrition. And I am passionate about it. Reading up on dietetic research and nutrition news lets my head spin with ideas about how to practically implement scientific theories into a daily training routine. That’s why no two nutrition plans I am designing look alike – they’re evidence-based, cutting-edge, and tailored to individual needs.
