I have been working as Psychological Counselor and Intercultural Education Officer at Jacobs University Bremen for the past 15+ years providing psychological and cross-cultural services to students and staff. Besides counseling, I have a lot of experience in advising and training concerned members of staff on handling emotionally difficult situations with international students. Due to my involvement at EAIE conferences, the Academy, as former Resource Person and Steering Group Member, as EAIE Rising Star Award winner, blogger, webinar provider and, last but not least, as Chair for the last term, I feel absolutely well equipped to continue leading the Steering group of the Expert Community Guidance and Counselling as of 2018.  In my capacity as Chair I am passionate about continuing the excellent work our Steering group has been doing, will stay tuned for a Guidance and counselling Spotlight Seminar and Profiling the Professional, and make sure that our action plans will be implemented successfully. Since I am particularly enthusiastic about culture-sensitive and inclusive student counselling, I will continue creating ample opportunities for counselling and guidance professionals to develop and showcase best-practices that will help us all take good care of the needs and wants of our prime customers: the students!
