About me
I am a native German with a strong background in business and accounting and a passion for travelling. Though I grew up in Germany, I also spent almost five years in the United States (the first time as an exchange student at age 16). Therefore, I speak English as well as my native language.

After I graduated from the University of Munich with a degree in Business (Finance, Accounting, Intercultural Communication) in 1997, I started my career as an auditor with a Big Four Accounting Firm (Munich, Germany, and Los Angeles, USA). My clients included both mid-sized companies and Fortune 200 corporations. I audited clients from a wide variety of industries: from meatpacking plants to a church. However, most of my clients belonged to the automotive, finance or consumer goods industry.

One of my main interests is travelling. Over the years I have traveled extensively in the United States (28 states so far) and have also visited Mexico, Austria, Italy, Malta, Spain, Tunisia, Egypt, Belgium and Great Britain. My experiences have ranged from a dude ranch to Walt Disney World to a UK hiking holiday. As a result, I am well-acquainted with tourism terminology and your travel-related texts are in good hands.

What my clients have said:
  • "Absolutely a 5-Star professional, with particular emphasis on technical skill and communication. Many thanks!"
  • "A rare quality, I have had many translators in the past and present, but this is by far the most efficient."
  • "Absolutely brilliant. A very controversial project that many were sceptical about taking on. Kitty was extremely professional and willing to see the project completed all the way through."
