the better me

...because you belong at the top of your list!


who I am

Born and raised in Germany, I have lived in Germany and in the United States and - since 2014 -  I have been living with my second husband and our four beautiful kids in The Hague.

I have a Bachelor Degree in Business Administration from the University of Maryland and in addition I am a State-Certified Cosmetologist as well as a Style and Colour Consultant.

The reason why I founded "the better me" was because I personally know how good it feels when you are finally at the point where you are happy with yourself - both on the outside and on the inside!  The two together make us who we are and my belief is that if one is out of balance, it negatively effects the other.

My goal is to help as many women as possible to get to the point, where their appearance reflects who they are on the inside. I keep my fees very reasonable because my main motivation is to help!

I speak fluent German and English and Dutch on a basic level.


what to expect

Expert advice, conveyed in a productive and non-biased, as well as in a fun and caring manner. 

Our body is the temple of our soul and therefore we should take care of it. They say that true beauty comes from within but I believe this only works if you are happy with your reflection in a mirror in the first place.

When a woman feels good in her own skin she is happier than when she doesn't. It is as simple as that.

When I work with a client, my focus is not to change her but rather to optimize who she already is. 

why optimize?

Good-looking people charm interviewers, get hired faster, are likely to make more sales and get higher raises. (WSJ 27.10.2001)

It is neither right nor fair but people form opinions and draw conclusions about your character based on how you look.

First impressions do matter.

Get positive feedback from your friends, family and partner. 

There is nothing wrong with being selfish! When was the last time you did something for yourself? You look after everyone else in your life. Who looks after you?

(Re-) gain confidence and invest in your self-worth.

Feel sexy (again).

Become a happier person.
