Nele Handwerker Portrait, Querformat

Who is Nele Handwerker?

I am an internationally experienced marketing specialist who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2004. After 15 exciting years in large companies, I became passionate about helping others with MS live as full and enjoyable a life as I do.

Since 2022 I study Multiple Sclerosis Management (M.Sc.) to gain expert status of the disease and treatment options. I'll present the learnings in a comprehensible way, engage in a constant exchange of views with other people affected by the disease, and try to pass on my optimism as often as possible.

After all, one thing is clear: MS must be approached in a well-informed and conscious manner, involving body, mind and psyche. This is how you achieve the greatest effect.

I received international recognition for my podcast by winning the 2022 Brain Health Award in the Patient Advocate category..
