Isabelle von Boetticher
I am the youngest of 3 siblings from a Haitian mother and a German father having grown up between Hamburg, Germany and Haiti in an idyllic greater family setting. I have always been and still am close to nature, wildlife and animals, as that is where I find peace and balance and where I feel at most being myself. My family is as much important to me as my health and wellbeing, which I nurture with daily mindful meditation, sports, yoga practice and yoga sharing.
Throughout my life I have been studying, working and living in countries like Germany, France, Belgium, UK, South Africa and now Haiti. My professional career started in global Marketing&Sales in the international telecommunications B2B sector and from there it moved me towards Organizational Development & People Management in the automotive and also in the global healthcare sector. After 20 years of working in the corporate and consultancy environment, I decided in 2014 that I needed a new challenge. I needed a more purposeful job. I wanted to live and work in Haiti, by that giving back something to this 2nd home-country of mine. So I gladly accepted the offer of a German NGO to be their country representative in Haiti for three years.
After this experience I am now taking the next step on my path of life and this time bringing together my passion for yoga&wellbeing and my professional competencies: I am developing a new SPA&Wellness concept which will impact the sustainable development of local communities in developing countries, and I want to start my pilot in Haiti. For this endeavor of mine, I am looking forward to becoming part of the THNK family, as I am seeking sound peer group and faculty advice, inspiration and the possibility to be part of a bigger, more global movement.
