Nadja is a native of Germany and nomad by choice. She has lived on three continents, including two tropical islands, where she survived super typhoons and earthquakes. Her nomadic lifestyle recently ended, when her redheaded Veteran husband (“Hooah”) retired from the military. The entire family—three kids, cats and a dog—pulled up their Hawaiian beach blankets and trekked 4600 miles to settle in lush Georgia.

A professionally-trained concierge, she also worked as a public relations assistant and was a staff writer for a Japanese weekly. She has a master’s degree in Communication and Information Studies from Rutgers University and currently works—underpaid, but not underappreciated—at a Middle School.

Nadja is a fibromyalgia warrior, a recovering insomniac, and a voracious reader.
