Lucie Strachonova

Editor

Lucie spent her childhood in the small town of Slavkov within the eastern region of the Czech Republic. She was an only child, but grew up surrounded by a large extended family (over 20 cousins!). From a young age, Lucie became passionate about British Literature and the English language. After finishing her degree she began consulting multi-national corporations such as Siemens, Opavia (Kraft Foods), and Hartmann, helping to apply advertising to the English language and educating employees as a teacher. Lucie became interested in etymology when she arrived in the US three years ago, and her research has helped contribute to the wealth of name information used on BellyBallot today.

Lucie attained her Masters Degrees in Education and Psychology, & English Language and Literature from the renowned Masaryk University in the Czech Republic. When not working, she enjoys yoga with her husband as a form of physical exercise and spiritual meditation.
