Salzburg became her permanent home, where she still lives with her family today.

In 2002 she earned her doctorate at the Faculty of Literature and Philosophy at the University of Siena, with a focus on history of music. The theme of her work was the vocal music of Arnold Schönberg: "Between speaking and singing, the Sprechgesang von Arnold Schönberg".
As a choir conductor she has completed various courses under the direction of Gerd Guglhör (Munich), Stefan Foidl (Vienna), Norbert Brandauer (Salzburg / Vienna) and Franz Herzog (Graz). She obtained professional experience by working with many groups with different occupations, such as the women's ensemble "Emozioni vocali" (2004-2007), the mixed choir "Chor der Salzburg Justiz" (2004-2006) and in cooperation with the musician Franz Pillinger in the project "From the sound of the soul" in 2007.

A very important experience in her artistic career was her participation at the Salzburg Festival in the production "Jedermann" as singer in the summers 2010, 2011 and 2012 under the direction of Christian Stückl. In 2014 she took over artistic direction of the choir "Weitersingen", main choir of the Salzburger Liedertafel, founded in 1847.
