"Chess is not only knowledge and logic". Alexander Alekhine

following the brilliant quote of The 4th World Chess Champion.... chess is fun, chess is friends, chess is community, and much more...

After completing my MA in Social and Economic studies in Vienna, Austria,  and Ph.D. in Economics, I worked for major financial and biotech companies all over the world for years.  I really enjoy working with the people of different cultures and backgrounds. I am a frequent volunteer: you can spot me at most if not all major BAC Chess Tournaments; I am  "at home" from my kids' classrooms, school library and lunch serving  to BAC Teams and tournaments:  I am a mother of two "Irish twins", who are in love with chess and are enthusiastic competitive chess players.

I am proud to be a part of BAC family and serve the best community in the world, along with our super-professional, hard-working management team and coaches !

Let me know if you need any help or have any questions :).
