About me

Tanya Quintieri aka Mrs. Divi

I am a versed and qualified translator, web designer and passionate entrepreneur, adding value to my clients’ businesses since 2002. My nine-to-five career, which lasted until 2009, took me from project management to marketing and human resources. Last employers included SME in engineering and IT.

Today, I offer clients in Marketing, IT, Digitization, and Industry 4.0 complete language solutions for their global communications. On the other hand, I build and host websites, mostly multilingual, for other entrepreneurs as well as for small and medium-sized enterprises and non-profit organizations. This portfolio of services perfectly ties together my background in marketing, including my experience gained in nearly 20 years in the language service industry.

I am a networker by heart, both in the real world and online and I truly enjoy building lasting business relationships with clients and colleagues. Especially clients reach out often to tap into my extensive network. 

On a personal note: I was born in 1976 to a half German, half Puerto Rican mother and a US American father with Lithuanian roots. I grew up moving back and forth between Europe and the United States of America until I settled in Germany in 1993.

In 2016, I relocated to the Czech Republic and Mrs. Divi was “born”.

The Person Behind Mrs. Divi

Those who know me would probably describe me as an open-minded optimist and that I am generous when sharing my knowledge with peers. Good friends will add that I have a special kind of humor and that they appreciate my no-bs approach to life.

If I had to describe myself, I’d say I’m curious, spontaneous and determined—not particularly in that order. I am an emotional person; enthusiastic and passionate about the things I love. Luckily, this also includes my work. Aside from loving my work on most days, I always value quality time with the people I love. I appreciate good food and wine. I enjoy treating myself or being treated to exclusive wine & dine evenings. The perfect life? Exploring the world as a digital nomad* with my little family.

*) Currently, I am location independent and work from all over Europe and the United States. I am accompanied by my family, living our dream. We usually spend several weeks or even months in one location, taking in the culture and vibes of the places we call our temporary homes. See the map below to see which places I have visited so far; feel free to explore my blog, where I also write about our adventures.
