About me

Katharina Fehring Kallivoka, german state-approved social care worker / german state-approved curative education teacher.

I was born and raised on a farm in the lovely region of Eastwestphalia in the middle west of Germany, part of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia. As a child my siblings and me had lots of space to play and of course many four-legged playmates. Barns full of pigs, several horses, the farm dog and the cats made sure it would never be boring.

Job related I chose a different lifestyle. First I became a German State-Approved Social Care Worker and later on a German State-Approved Curative Education Teacher.

When I moved to Greece in 2012 I couldn't work in my profession. The language difficulties and the different qualifications I needed made it very hard. What to do, was the main question. Back to the roots was the answer.

It was a childhoods dream to have a donkey. Since 2013 me and my donkey ladies are running the Donkey Trekking Kefalonia.
