Other information
From 2013 she was part of a K2 500m team with Viktoria Schwarz. The pair just missed out on direct qualification to the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. However, when Austria was given a place in the women's K2 500m due to the disqualification of several other teams, she was entered by the Austrian Olympic Committee with Yvonne Schuring, while Schwarz concentrated on her individual event. The new partnership trained together for only two weeks before the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. (, 27 Jul 2016;, 19 May 2016)

She moved with her family from Romania to Austria in 1994. She became an Austrian citizen in 1999. (, 28 Jul 2016)
