I am 38 years old, married since 2002 to Marc Schumann (a Maths and Physics teacher at Gymnasium Leonhard) and a mother to a son, Luca born 2010, and a daughter, Layla born 2012.  I have a PhD in Molecular Biology from the University of Zurich specialising in Diabetes.  Currently I am on maternity leave, but I was a scientist in the department of cardiovascular and diabetes research at Boehringer-Ingelheim, a pharmaceutical company in Biberach, Germany from 2008-2014.  My hobbies include jogging and reading.
