During my childhood on the North side of Chicago, I took to Serbian folk dancing (kolos) with a passion exposing me to female humanities and the social structure and symbolism of past and present South Slavic societies. I am founder and CEO of Kolo: Women’s Cross Cultural Collaboration, which works with women who have been affected by war crimes and women who are war survivors. I am attached to the International Criminal Court in the capacity of Psycho-Social Victims Gender expert and this has led me to Chad, Congo, and Uganda and it has brought me face-to-face with catastrophic war and the issues surrounding violence. As a social scientist, I spent a year in Afghanistan.
