I am an educator and a mother of two. I believe in professional and personal development and in the power of dialogue, no matter how difficult. I love animals and currently own four - a golden retriever, a rescued African street dog and two adopted cats. I am a passionate cook, constantly testing new recipes, I love birdwatching, reading, hiking, skiing and doing puzzles. I have lived and worked in Poland, US, Ghana, Hungary, Uganda and Kenya but Kenya is where I left my heart. I currently reside in Congo, Brazzaville.
