Fun Facts

I was born (and raised) in San Francisco to Russian and Greek immigrant parents from South America and am mom to two brilliant little humans and a Doodle. I’m an avid SCUBA diver, passionate yoga practitioner, and eager beginning tennis player. Studying foreign languages is a deep passion of mine, likely inspired by being raised trilingual. Holistic wellness is a major values tenet in my life. I am a certified integrative health coach and actively building my practice to support and complement my work at PORTAL.
