Milli Metzker


Milli was born in Mexico and has lived in other countries such as India, Brazil, The Netherlands, and Germany. She moved with her husband and twin daughters from Cologne, Germany to Miami in 2010.

Milli looked for a way to allow her daughters to retain their German culture. This is when she came across GIPA and the German International Studies program at Sunset Elementary into which she enrolled her daughters three years ago.

Milli received a BA in International Business Administration which encouraged her to take over a family owned business and run it for several years. Milli also worked in the marketing department of Augen Optics in Mexico and for Messe Duesseldorf in Germany.

Milli likes to volunteer for GIPA and other school activities, but in her free time you will find her cooking or reading books, which are her two passions.
