I would like to get know people from the communications field to have a chance to understand the local business environment for my future career. I want to get involved via networking events to make friends and have frank discussions about real options in the marketing field. I am also eager to volunteer for communication companies to get closer to the real marketing world in U.S. 


  • Family and hometown – I am married and have one wonderful daughter. We come from Prague in the Czech Republic. Currently, I live in Rochester Hills with lots of outdoor opportunities like parks, trails, and playgrounds. I enjoy living in our house, surrounded by nature. I especially like summer evenings on our patio.
  • Interests – I like any kind of sport that makes me feel healthy. However, I most enjoy running, swimming, skiing and yoga. I enjoy giving special attention to my family and friends when we share good food and have nice conversations inspiring each other. During long Michigan winters I’ve re-discovered the passion for good books – fiction & non-fiction too.
  • Causes/volunteer service – I support our daughter’s school by volunteering during lunch breaks or special events. I am a member of a women’s expat community sharing experiences, helping each other and participating in interesting events.
