Katjuscha was baptised into the Orthodox Church in September 2002. She is a native of Chicago, but has spent much of the last few years living in Germany.
One of her many esoteric interests is in a Nazi resistance Group "Die Weiße Rose" (The White Rose), particularly in the life of Alexander Schmorell.
She is also an internet addict, though hopefully not all of it is wasted time. She is one of the moderators at the LiveJournal group "Orthodox_single".
