After discovering her love for Waldorf education, she trained at the Freie Hochschule in Stuttgart, Germany, to become a Waldorf class teacher and high school arts teacher. During her four-year education, Nadja traveled to different places around the world and developed her artistic skills by sculpting in Italy and participating in numerous art exhibitions. In 2005, Nadja came to Florida, where she taught in several pioneering Waldorf schools and started a family with her husband Tom. Tom and Nadja’s son Aiden is currently a student at EWS.
