I completed my Master and Doctoral studies in biology, with a major in genetics, at the University of Salzburg. After an exciting time as a research assistant at the Salzburg department for forensic medicine, I worked for the Austrian Agency for Health and Food Safety (AGES) for several years. In 2012 I moved to the Kinderwunch Klinik Dr Loimer in Talhaim bei Wels, where I found my calling as an embryologist in the IVF laboratory. In addition to my work as an embryologist, I took over the management of the IVF laboratory in the Kinderwunsch Klinik in Wels, and later also the management of the laboratory in the Kinderwunsch Klinik Dr Loimer in Vienna, where I worked as a laboratory manager and embryologist until May 2020. Together with extraordinary colleagues, I have been able to develop and deepen my passion and love for the IVF laboratory and embryology more and more every day. Now it is a great pleasure for me to be part of the KIWI Linz team and to dedicate my passion to the patients here.
