I was born in Moldova and raised in Moscow to a musical and artistic family. I hold degrees in Journalism and Pharmacology. I studied classical piano for ten years and am a certified instructor in Neurographica (ask me about it!)
My (Canadian) husband and I came to Flin Flon in 2022 and we fell in love with the vibrant arts and culture community here and have decided to make Flin Flon our home.
I am excited to be the new Executive Director of the Arts Council and look forward to continuing the work and legacy created by Crystal Kolt
