I moved to Valencia in 2007 – actually I made the move and visited the city for the first time on the same day. I had no one waiting for me here, I didn´t speak any Spanish, I was desperate to find my new home (meanwhile my life was packed in the car), and I didn’t have enough savings to take things slow. Eventually it all worked out well – now Valencia has been my home for years and I´m in love with this city!
I hold a degree in Law and Master’s degree in Human rights, Democracy and International Justice. Although I do not perform as human right´s lawyer and activist anymore, I strongly support human rights values and stand against discrimination based on gender, race, origin, sexual orientation or any other grounds, enhance environmental sustainability and back animal protection.
I am socially very active – I have organised international sports events and intercultural activities, which have given me invaluable experience and lots of personal connections. So as a result, here I am – positive, active and willing to find an outstanding home for you in Valencia!
More than ten years ago, after having lived in different countries, I chose Valencia as my home as it had all the best qualities one could wish for in a city. My personal experience and the fact I speak four languages fluently – English, Spanish, Russian and Latvian, allow me to better understand cultural differences and to offer the best solutions to overcome any barriers our clients could face when relocating themselves.
Although I hold a degree in political studies, I have professional experience in several fields such as event management, public relations and marketing campaigns. I also have an administrative background in the construction and welding industries. During the last few years my professional trajectory has been focused on research and analysis of different marketing strategies such as SEO, business optimisation and growth. Apart from that, I´ve consulted on several start up projects and have provided IT solutions to various local businesses.
I am an avid squash player and also head coach for the Ladies Squash Club of Valencia. The sport of squash has been my hobby for many years, and has helped me greatly to develop an extended network of connections in all kind of business areas here in Valencia. Squash has also taught me to work hard and to always give my best to reach my goals.
For more than a decade, I have called Valencia my home. I arrived here with an engineer’s degree and a passion for improvisation and drama, which allows me to use both my technical curiosity and creativity.
I joined YES Valencia team in 2018 as a relocation consultant and I have been fortunate to be a part of transition to a large number of families moving to Valencia. As a natural growth, the years of experience assisting families with home search in Valencia has led me to not only provide professional relocation assistance, but also to use my knowledge and skills as a property finder and to make sure our client investment is smart and safe.
Apart from real estate and relocation fields, I do have a professional background in event and seminar organisation and NGO gender equality sector, which have taught me to be focused, aim- oriented and positive and to enjoy fully my work.
Mum of two teenagers and married to a Spanish husband, I have travelled the World and lived outside of my native country for half of my life. We moved to Valencia at the end of 2017, after having lived in 5 different countries with my family. I can easily put myself in my clients´ shoes due to the fact that I myself have gone through the relocation and settling-in process in a new country several times. I completely understand the stresses families have on finding schools, going through the different immigration and registration procedures, finding the most appropriate housing, learning the culture and meeting new people in a foreign country while also navigating a foreign language.
I hold a degree in economics, and I have years of experience in corporate finance and relocation services. I consider myself an analytical person who is used to looking for and finding solutions. I have been in the real estate business in Valencia since relocating here. This is a fantastic city with great opportunities to explore and to really enjoy a high quality of life.
When I am not with clients, I spend the time with my family and friends, going on nature walks with my dog while listening to good music or podcasts, or reading a book on a hammock in my garden.
