While still studying, she made her debut at the Grillo Theater in Essen in Joshua Sobol’s piece “Ghetto”, which was followed by regular engagements in different theatres in Germany and later in England. In 1999, she stood in front of a camera for the first time in the award winning short cinema film “Blush”. Since then she works mainly in film and television.
