Howdy! I am Jenia (pronounced ZHE-nya). I am a pro bono early childhood specialist (aka raising two young kids) and the Chief Family Officer.

WordPress stats: before my current sabbatical, I spent 4+ years working at Automattic, first as a Happiness Engineer (customer support) and then as a Globe Wrangler (localization). I founded the Houston and Geneva WordPress meetups.

Geo stats: before settling down in the Zürich area, I lived in Minsk, Budapest, Geneva (twice), Beijing, Boston, Dar es Salaam, Vienna (twice), and Houston. Give or take, it adds up to nine cities in seven countries.

Linguistic stats: I’ve studied ten languages and speak five and a half: Russian, English, Hungarian, French, and half each of Belarusian, German, and Spanish.
