Originally from Germany, Teresa started her career in tourism in Cologne where she worked as a hotel specialist for Radisson SAS and gained practical experience in all areas of a hotel business for 3 years. During her geography and political science studies in both Germany and Spain she discovered her strong interest for sustainable development and gained valuable insight into other sectors of the tourism industry by working for a travel agency in customer support as well as creating a corporate social responsibility concept for a tour operator. Subsequently she moved to Berlin to work for a certification body for environmental management systems as a project manager with customers across all industries. After 2 years she missed the closeness to the tourism industry and joined Travelife in July 2017 to combine her passion for tourism, the hotel industry and sustainability.
