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.

In addition to my mother tongue German, I speak fluent English and Greek.
