Henna

Office Coordinator

Henna was born and raised far beyond the wall in the wild, wild East German countryside. Her journey led her to Berlin to begin her career, first studying culture and technology (core subject philosophy)—though somehow she lost track and never finished. Undeterred and determined, she worked at a few different software development companies until she finally arrived at u-he’s safe haven in 2016.

At u-he, Henna takes care of the back office, is the accounting department, a sorting hero and overall caretaker. She often has the challenging task of trying to keep us organised. We are thankful she keeps trying.

Away from work, Henna spends a lot of time with her son learning everything about dinosaurs and playing endless games of yes-no. She is a pro now, challenge her if you dare. Henna is a junkie for the good things in life: music, TV series, tattoos, a glass of fine gin. Though finding time to enjoy them all is a challenge between being a mom and an office superwoman.
