She graduated in psychology from the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan and then obtained a first-degree diploma in clinical specialisation at the UAM. For the first 10 years of her career she worked as a clinician and psychotherapist.

She often acts as a project manager and HR process supervisor, working according to her own methodology.

A large part of Wisia's life is occupied by music and making music – she practices chamber choir music, singing in early music and church music ensembles.
