She received her higher education in economics in Skopje and in her early twenties she moved to Germany.
For almost 40 years she worked as a journalist for the international Radio and TV station DW in Cologne.
She took initiation into Kriya Yoga in 1998 from Peter van Breukelen who inspired her to meet Paramahamsa Hariharananda.
Three years later, in 2001 she and her daughter went to Miami Ashram to spend the Christmas time with Gurudev Baba Hariharanandaji. For her spiritual development, this one month together with the Master was the most important turning point in her life. She was blessed by perceiving a divine light radiating from his body.
Apart from being the breadwinner for the family she was regularly attending KY seminars in Europe and India to be closer to her beloved Guruji Paramahamsa Prajnanananda.
