Dr. Mroziewicz came to the United States as a teenager and attended Sacred Heart High School graduating in three years.

Her father, Tadeusz, was very active in the Polish Community, including acting as a president of the White Eagle Club, which helped Polish immigrants and organized a school with Polish language.

She has been married for 28 years to Krzysztof Janik and has three children: Marta, a teacher of ESL (English as a Second Language) in Virginia, Monika is working in Washington D.C. and Adam who is completing his third year of studies at Stanford University in California. All three of her children speak Polish and love to spend their vacations in Poland, where they’ve taken courses in Polish language at the Jagiellonia University in Cracow.

In her spare time, she is a member of the Polish Heritage Club and John Paul II Foundation.

Tad Szyszka, chairman of the Polish Festival says Dr. Mroziewicz is a “great doctor, who is well known in the Polish community. I will never forget her enthusiasm for our Festival when we moved to Clinton Square, her support gave us great momentum and motivation to continue with our goals.”
