She has been involved in making nature documentaries (there is also a movie about Katarina’s life), CSR and ocean conservation projects with affirmation on education for sustainable development. She has been fortunate to gain diverse personal and professional experience while working and travelling in more than 60 countries.
At a young age, Katarina faced painful health difficulties which deeply affected her life and general philosophy. She believes that perseverance and her choices to lead a more healthy lifestyle combined with a boost in mental fitness which happened during her decade-long freediving & meditation practice, have been key elements in turning the direction of her life from nearly being confined to a wheelchair , instead being able to experiencing more joy as well reaching fulfilment in sport and the education industry.
