After my school time and the Abitur, I began my study of human medicine at the University of Heidelberg. After my doctorate I worked as an assistant doctor at the Ludwigsburg Clinic and at the University Women's Hospital in Bonn.
After further positions as senior physician at the University Women's Hospitals of Marburg, Homburg/Saar and Tübingen, I obtained my habilitation and was appointed DEGUM course instructor on the basis of my qualifications.

After working as senior physician and head of the Department of Prenatal and Fetal Medicine at the University Women's Hospital Tübingen, I opened Prenatal Medicine Stuttgart in Sophienstraße in October 2007. Since August 2018 I have been practicing alone in the new spacious practice at Alte Poststraße 3.
