In addition to her studies at the Carinthian Regional Conservatory and the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna – she graduated with honours from both institutions – she also worked with Mara Zampieri in Padua, while numerous masterclasses rounded off her training. She has received a number of scholarships for talented singers, was a finalist in the AsLiCo Competition in Italy and won the second prize at the Birgit Nilsson Competition.
