Born in Russia and immigrating to the US in 1996, Olga understands first-hand what it’s like to be brought up with limiting beliefs about what a woman can or can’t be. She understands that these deeply ingrained beliefs can come with years of depression, anxiety, and a deep aversion to allowing oneself to take up space. In short, Olga has made it her mission to use her life and career experiences, to help others overcome limiting beliefs and reach their career potential - unapologetically.
