Secondary School Liason
Having been at BBIS for 8 years, with her German husband Daniel and their two children Dominik grade 9 and Valentina grade 7, Vinita and her family have greatly enjoyed initiating and facilitating Lego-based education at the school.
With a Masters in Psychology and 20 years of international corporate consulting experience, Vinita is now serving as a Strategist, Coach and Consultant for Entrepreneurs and Professionals. Vinita enables her clients to thrive by healing from the emotional trauma of being bullied, ostracized, minimized or side-lined and is on a personal mission to awaken 10,000 souls to a life of alignment, purpose and bliss.
Of Indian heritage, Vinita is British/ Australian and has been living in Germany for 19 years.
What many don’t know is that Vinita was once a drummer in a Jazz band and played piano and drums on stage at the Sydney Opera House; and despite climbing the belt ranks in high-school Judo, she is secretly governed by the family’s fur baby Lucy the cat.
