I spent the largest part of my childhood with my grandparents in Denmark. Through my grandfather, who had studied theology, I came to love the Bible. Later when I lived in Germany with my parents, I was introduced to Christian Science and attended Sunday School for a number of years. As my parents were musicians, playing an instrument became one of my hobbies.

I was trained as a teacher for nursery schools (kindergarten teacher) and as a teacher of extra curricular activities to school children of all ages.

When I got married to an architect, this quite naturally  started my interest in architecture. My husband and I had five children, two of whom were adopted.

During the very difficult years that followed, I found support in Christian Science, joined a branch church as an active member, and took Christian Science class instruction.

Christian Science practice came to me quite naturally as people started asking me for help. I applied for listing in The Christian Science Journal in 1987.

Beginning in1994, I travelled throughout Europe as a Christian Science lecturer.

In the spring of 2000 I read in the Journal that one could apply for  Normal class, and one morning I woke up with the clear order to apply, which I did because I had learnt to trust God‘s leading and to obey.

I love teaching students this healing Science, and it has enriched and blessed my life in the most wonderful way.
