About Me

My passion is working with people and helping them discover their purpose and career path.  I enjoy working collaboratively in order to find solutions to hurdles and overcoming any obstacles that individuals face.

In mentoring and coaching individuals, I help them realize their strengths, successes and opportunities, which allows them to become the best version of themselves.  When this is achieved, I’ve done my job. 

I believe that businesses succeed based on the culture that is created by their people, which is why I am extremely dedicated to employee relations, employment law, and culture and engagement.

Originally from Kiev, Ukraine, I moved to Los Angeles, CA at 6 years of age.  While attending the University of California, Santa Barbara and studying Sociology, I realized that understanding people and their behavior is a huge passion of mine.  This is why I went into HR.  While earning my Master’s degree in Business, I also learned the importance of servant leadership, which is why I went into management.  


Career Hacks

My favorite  app is the LinkedIn App. I check it throughout the day because I always stumble upon new and intriguing articles, great interactions, and products and services that can help me with my career.
