I was born and raised in Berlin Germany. In 1996 I graduated from the prestigeous State School of Language Correspondence Friedrich List in Berlin with a vocational degree as language corrspondent for German and English. Upon graduation I relocated to Mississippi, USA to study journalism. I graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi in 1999 with a BA in Photojournalism. I am the proud mother of two and currently work part-time in an office that generates short-term unsecured loans. Before becoming a "full-time mother" four years ago I participated in community theater and enjoyed translating German texts into English simply to make the accessible for my English-speaking husband.
