Born and raised in Warsaw, she moved to Orlando in 2015; however, she has maintained professional relationships with Poland for the next several years. She received a PhD in Social Science from the University of Warsaw in January 2020 for a dissertation dedicated to the role of local activists in creating memory narratives in Central Florida. She completed a postgraduate program of the Polish Language Pedagogy at the Polish Language Institute of the University of Warsaw in 2013. This is where she had an opportunity to first work with international students who were learning Polish.
She likes to spend her limited free time by going to a park with her husband and their dog or practicing her sewing skills.
