Portrait of Katrina


I met Katarina at the tennis center where her daughter was participating in a summer tennis program. I was fascinated with the pregnant Katarina who worked for the International Olympic Committee and prepared opening ceremonies for the  Olympic Games, Pan American Games and other ceremonies worldwide.

Katarina’s English was excellent because of school, work and travel.  Katarina Studied in Sweden and then in Russia. She spoke five different languages: Russian, Swedish, French, English and German.

Katarina was originally from St. Petersburg, Russia but then “lived in Moscow for quite a few years. ” She was visiting Beverly Hills, California, USA and loved Los Angeles, California, USA. She enjoyed being in LA and wished “the best of luck to anyone who is in Los Angeles which includes people who live there or people who came to travel…and…have a great summer.”

For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy." Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama." Some Basic Things about me: Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer. I consider myself "The Astro-Poet." To learn more about the origins of the word "zongrik" see whats-a-zongrik?
