Who we are
I grew up in Billstedt and Mümmelmansberg and worked for more than 23 years as a medical assistant in Billstedt. So I know very well the needs and challenges that people living in these two neighbourhood are facing. I really enjoy working with people; I find it interesting and exciting, especially in multicultural neighbourhoods like Billstedt and Horn. All the more I am really looking forward to advising you and sharing my knowledge about the local offers in the two neighbourhoods.
I come from Brazil but have been living in Hamburg since 2007 where I studied nursing and healthcare. I can speak Portuguese (my native language), German and English. I feel very proud of my colourful Brazilian heritage, but I can also easily identify myself with aspects of the German culture. What I enjoyed most while working as a nurse in the cardiology ward of a hospital was to work with different type of people. I would like to get to know you better. I am quiet but humorous and am looking forward to our discussions and counselling sessions!

I was born in Russia but have been living in Germany since I was eleven. Therefore, I am familiar with both the “thick skin” of Russians and the punctuality of Germans. I studied prevention and health promotion and worked for the social services of a rehabilitation clinic. What do I find inspiring? Working with and for people. That’s why I am really looking forward to meeting you!
I have a Turkish migrant background, can speak both Turkish and German fluently and know very well the peculiarities of both cultures. While I was studying health sciences, I was also able to gain experience in prevention counselling and as a teacher for children with a foreign background. I am very empathic and know very well how difficult it is not being able to communicate in your mother tongue. That is why I am looking forward to meeting you and our discussions in both languages.
I emigrated from Poland to Germany in 1989. I then settled in the multicultural city of Hamburg. I find it amazing! I worked for many years as a caregiver for Geriatrics and Gerontopsychiatry in different care settings in Hamburg. I find it particularly enriching to provide counselling to people with different cultural backgrounds. I have attended continuous education training courses, more recently in Case Management for health and senior care. Therefore, I am really looking forward to our counselling sessions, especially to the ones in my mother tongue (Polish).
