I am a nature- and people-loving ambivert who combines her professional experience as an executive and entrepreneur with her passion for inner development and living an impactful life.

My goal as the founder of VDB Insights is to inspire and help people live a life of purpose that is deeply satisfying for the individual and serves the planet.

I am a former investment banker, private equity and hedge fund specialist, and an active investor in the public and private markets through our family office VDB Group. I have a Ph.D. in science from ETH Zurich and am an alumna of Harvard Business School and the London School of Economics. Additionally, I am actively serving as Chairwoman of two non-profit organizations and was honored as a “Rising Talent” by the Women’s Forum for the Economy & Society.

The inner component of leadership, the quality of our presence, and a sense of connection to the greater whole are becoming increasingly important. As our current systems are failing, we need a different way of thinking, being, and leading. 

Mindfulness is not just about taking care of ourselves and experiencing peaceful moments on the meditation cushion. It is about how this practice helps us bring our actions in alignment with what truly matters to us, with who we want to be.

My own inner work led me to become a certified mindfulness meditation teacher. The intensive two-year training taught by Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach is accredited by the Awareness Training Institute and the Greater Good Science Center at the University of California at Berkeley. I am also training as a transformational breath coach. 

Moreover, I am a loving wife, mom of twins, dog mom, and friend.

Thank you for your interest and being on this journey with me!

Best wishes,


create conscious impact for yourself and others
