Born in the beautiful Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Barbara completed her schooling with top marks and then went on to university to do German and Romance studies. Since the agency for supporting highly gifted students advised her to study something “serious” for her scholarship, she simultaneously made efforts to gain insights into the areas of law and medicine, and she has retained this curiosity for anything interesting and for the latest scientific findings to the present day.
After a 5-year stay in Caen (Normandy, France), where she acted as “Attaché de Recherche” at the university and at ISMRA (university of technology) teaching in the Department for German Studies, she returned to Munich to work as a presenter on the science program “Clip und Claro” at the BR and on the “Zauberwelt der Berge” at the ZDF; she further participated in the comedy series “Varell und Decker” and co-wrote some successful German TV shows.
After her spontaneous application to the then very new TV channel HOT, she was engaged on the spot and helped to develop numerous successful product segments with a great deal of commitment and enthusiasm, acquiring an ever increasing community of fans who like her consistently sensitive, friendly, and cheerful presenting style. Both viewers and customers value the congenial, empathetic, strong woman for her naturalness, authenticity, competence, and honesty.
After her successful career at HSE24 spanning almost 15 years, she is now fulfilling her greatest wish to work once more in the area of science by writing a well-founded, yet easily intelligible book about the human cell and by working with leading scientists to develop a holistic concept for cell protection from both inside and out.
