Christina Jacobs in private
“My Landseer dog speaks in a language of her own, but cheese cubes and doggy chews help us to communicate without words.
I’m aware how important it is to get the tone right, not just as a translator but also as an ardent choir singer with Vokalkreis Reinbek.
Interior design and furnishings is something that I’m also interested in as a private individual. I love going round country markets to collect ideas for a cosy home.”
