About

I started my career as an Optical Engineer with a joint degree in Innovation and Entrepreneurship, and worked in Silicon Valley and China – where I spent two years immersed among our two local Chinese teams and learnt to speak Mandarin. After these experiences, I found that being an International Engineer was not my calling. Having the most creative and playful soul, I recognized that I needed to channel my gifts into a connection with human beings vs technology. My journey led me to be interested in the development of children, including Gifted Children, being one myself. I hold the Montessori 0-3 Assistant to Infancy Certificate from AMI (Association Montessori International). I am also deeply sensitive to the beauty of language and sounds, and am a writer of poetry.

Working with a variety of children between 2-months of age and 10- years of age, from different countries and genders, I am blessed to have accompanied them on their individual path, and witnessed the formation of their personalities.

I have been delighted to support their vivid curiosity and appetite for life with my own knowledge and skills. Their creations range from artistic, scientific creations to metaphysical discussions – what is a friend, why are there wars, or very concretely why do ducks have not teeth?

Being naturally curious and interested in a great variety of subjects, I strive to encourage them in their passions, and consciously coach them to search for the answers to their many questions.

In our times together, it is my joy and mission to actively listen to them, gently guide them in their discovery of life, and eventually share with the parents my observations about the growth and evolution of their child, and what I noticed he or she was receptive to.

I am sharing below examples of works accomplished by the children I’ve been caring for, I am very happy to have been able to channel their energy into something successful they were proud to show and comment on, or to have supported them in achieving a new milestone in their development.
