After graduating from Cooperative State University Mannheim/Germany (DHBW Mannheim) with a diploma in mechanical engineering I worked for more than 18 years in the patent department of the international corporation Deere & Company as a searcher, patent engineer, patent attorney and part of the international patent department management team before starting my own search and consulting business in 2012.
My engineering background and my extensive experience in the patent area enables me to provide high-level search services. As an engineer and European patent attorney I have developed strong analytical skills as well as enhancing my focus and organizations skills. I have an in-depth understanding of the importance of efficient and result-driven work. My international management role provided me with extensive team-work experience, and helped me learn to work virtually very effectively.
I am considered to be a great facilitator capable of driving teams to sustainable results
I speak German (mother tongue) and English (fluent). My knowledge of the French language supports me in drafting meaningful search language, reviewing documents and analyzing results.
