She is the solo flutist of the Camerata Bern and Sinfonieorchester Jura/Switzerland and is member of the Oper Orchestra of the Colon Theater in Buenos Aires/Argentina. She also collaborates with the Basel and Lausanne chamber orchestras.

She completed her education in Argentina under Adriana Rodriguez and in Switzerland with Felix Renggli, in the well-known soloists-class of the Hochschule Basel. Her studies were complemented by, among others, Aurele Nicolet, who inspired her greatly.

She is extremely committed to performing contemporary music and is a member of the modern music ensemble “laboratorium”, with whom she has played in many festivals and premiered many works written especially for the ensemble.
