She has been working as a lecturer and a licensed tour guide since 1991. She is also working as an independent researcher and writing articles for various journals on art and archaeology. She knew that the only way to understand the complicated historical and cultural background of Turkey was to dig deeper into the history and at the same time to go beyond the books to experience and observe the local lifestyles of the country people.
