After taking part in some commentary features on advertising, she was offered a job creating and hosting the country's weekly advertising programme, CikCak, which she did for eight years. She has also lectured in advertising at the University of Ljubljana. She was lured to help set up OpenAd in 2003.
She's already set up two successful ventures: an agency she helped to get off the ground and a new show that became, against all odds, a prime time success. Katarina is fluent in English, French, Italian, German and Slovenian.
