Katherin spent several years as a consultant for Roland Berger Strategy Consultants where she advised clients in the business as well as the public sector, including the German Government. Driven by her desire to understand the intricacies of global economics and Corporate Social Responsibility, Katherin also tried her hand in many other fields – giving her the unique opportunity to research everything from micro-businesses in rural Nicaragua, to communication and CSR activities in large multinationals and international organizations such as the UN.

After years of living all over the world, she is now settled in Berlin with her husband and daughter and enjoys skiing, yoga, and travelling – which is just as well, seeing as we make her fly all over the globe on a regular basis!
