My family has always been connected to sport and that is why I love spending time actively as long as I can remember. A trip to the nature and a company of warm-hearted people makes me immensely happy. However, since I have become a mum, my favourite destination is the warm embrace of my family. My family and children are my inspiration and happiness. The turning point of my career came after Neža, my elder daughter, was born. At that time, I became increasingly interested in babies’ motor development. It seems no coincidence that I met Janja during my explorations in this field. Our friendship resulted in the formation of Pedosana in 2012. While attending motor development sessions with my two daughters, gaining formal training in the field of motor development and working with babies at Pedosana for several years, I gained a lot of valuable experience. With the help from the entire team at the Pedosana centre, I offer support to parents and help babies on their way to motor independence. My work at Pedosana fulfils me and I am gratified to witness warm and priceless family ties on a daily basis. I hope the time you spend with your child will fill you with joy and pleasure, at Pedosana or somewhere else.
I was still a child when my life taught me the lesson that health is the greatest gift. I grew up in an environment where movement was an integral part of everyday life. That is why it was easy for me to decide what to study; the Faculty of Health Sciences was the only option I was interested in. After I became a mum, I gradually understood the importance of a stimulative environment for babies’ proper motor development. I met Vesna, also a first-time mother of Neža (our daughters carry the same name) and we soon found common ground. We decided to do something good for fresh parents and thus our Pedosana was formed. We have been working in this field for more than seven years. When I had my second child, Ažbe, I learned even more. I realized how important it is to give our babies enough time and opportunities for exploration of their bodies during the first year of their lives. I yearn for new knowledge. I seek information and extend my knowledge in all areas; I develop my approach and improve exercises. I share my knowledge and experience with parents so that their babies’ development will be optimal in the first year of their lives.

Sport, as a form of movement, has been a part of my life since childhood, when I was first a member of the Narodni Dom Rhythmic Gymnastics Club and later a member of the Zelena jama Gymnastics Club. When I entered faculty, sport somewhat faded into the background but nonetheless persisted—as an escape, inspiration, wind in my head, or energy boost. In 2009, I became a mum for the first time. I received a different kind of energy and came close to a movement that pointed me in a different direction. In a direction of a small person, whose movement changes from day to day. When I had a second child, the movement track was somewhat similar, but definitely not the same. I was impressed by the movement of two little devils and inspired to encourage their development from the very beginning. My children, Sara and Rok, showed and proved that movement is a basic virtue, which enables small people to discover their own course of development. This is why I would like to show mums how to encourage their little treasures and help them proudly step into the world.
I have been enthusiastic about various sports since the early age and competed in tennis for almost 10 years. After secondary school, I decided to study kinesiology. I worked as a tennis coach for children and during my obligatory study practice I worked as a psychotherapist at the Youth Health and Summer Resort Debeli Rtič. After getting the degree in 2015, I wanted to explore further the area of babies’ motor development. When I entered Pedosana for the first time, I saw how dedicated Vesna and Janja are. I instantly knew that I wanted to become a part of their team. I put all my knowledge into practice and entered the Pedosana programme with my nephew Maks, who was only a few weeks old. Nowadays, the little guy is already discovering the world on his own. Observing what babies can achieve in their first year is amazing. Seeing satisfaction and smiles on the faces of our little treasures when they do something on their own, is certainly a most rewarding moment.
