After completing her studies as a qualified opera singer and music teacher, she was hired in permanent positions at the Bremen Opera and German National Theatre in Weimar, where, over the seasons that followed, she featured in prominent roles, including Sophie (Der Rosenkavalier) (The Knight of the Rose), Pamina (The Magic Flute), Gretel (Hansel and Gretel), Julia de Weert (The Cousin from Nowhere), Donna Clara (Der Zwerg (The Dwarf) and Liù (Turandot).

Opernglas, Opernwelt) for her widely acclaimed debut as Dora in the performance of Franz Hummel's contemporary opera Blaubart (Blue Beard), and has since been a sought-after guest for interpretations of contemporary works around the globe. She was awarded the prestigious Kurt Hübner Prize by the Theater Bremen in 2012 for her outstanding work in the arts. In recent years, she has done guest stints at the likes of the Prague State Opera, Dortmund Opera House, the Leipzig Opera and at international concert halls, including the Tchaikovsky Concert Hall in Moscow.
