KATHLEEN and KC:
We are both from the United States and have lived in Switzerland for over 20 years now. We have been very happily married for 31 years and have two grown sons and a 6-year-old dog named Phoebe.
We both love hiking, snowshoeing and skiing, chocolate and ice cream. If we can have all 5 in one day, we celebrate with an extra scoop.
For 18 years we worked as teachers, dorm heads and also co-directors of a wonderful boarding school here in the Swiss Alps. We are now both parent and teacher educators of the Positive Discipline approach, giving talks, workshops and classes in Switzerland and the U.S.
We are long-time ovo-lacto vegetarians and students of Thich Nhat Hanh.
I am a social worker and currently work as a parent educator and coach in private practice. I worked for 9 years in the US as a psychotherapist and then 18 years in Switzerland in a unique international boarding school in many different roles.
In addition to what's listed above, I love coffee, yoga, being with family and friends, reading, NYT crossword puzzles, films (not action or horror). I am a huge fan of Michelle and Barack Obama.
I love back-country skiing, swimming in alpine lakes and rivers, reading stories aloud, playing games like chess, bridge, sudoku and free cell, frisbee with our dog, tennis, and traveling.
