My Background:

Originally from Russia, I lived in London for 10 years before moving to Sydney in 2011. I completed a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Studies with Finance and moved into recruitment in 2008. I have specialised in Banking and Financial Services IT ever since.

I am very hard working, dedicated and passionate about what I do. I am always happy to provide professional advice to set up or build PMO, deliver Transformation programs or strategic changes within your business, or assist you with your career progression and help you to make the right move.

I have developed extensive networks across Sydney and London in the Project Services space, which has been strengthened by numerous events and organisations that I am part of: PMI, IIBA, PMO meet ups and the Sydney Scrum user group.

I love the beach life, scuba diving, sailing, horse riding, seriously good food and have a strong passion for designer shoes.
