As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”
In addition to being a huge fan of blazing trails, I am an experienced attorney, seasoned business developer, and certified business development and leadership coach. I am co-founder of 20/20 Leadership Group, an award-winning women-owned legal talent development firm that specializes in helping Am Law 100 and Am Law 200 firms solve their three most important challenges: 1) attract talent, 2) increase retention and reduce attrition, and 3) boost diversity and inclusion. Our coaches and advisors help law firms develop practical talent development strategies and work with lawyers to propel their professional growth and business development success.
I am also the co-creator of 20/20 Leadership Group's Rainmaking Academy, an online program for busy lawyers that makes the business development training process doable and convenient. You can check it out at www.RainmakingAcademy.com
As a professional speaker, I am regularly invited to speak at topics such as business development, networking, relationship building, leadership development, multicultural communication, and emotional intelligence. I have had the pleasure of speaking for law firms, the Florida Bar, legal and professional associations, universities, and corporations such as the Miami Dolphins, Airbus and others.
Having grown up in Russia, I am an avid international traveler and am passionate about personal development and inner growth. Something few people know about me is that in one year I spent two months volunteering in Costa Rica, traveled to South Korea and Russia, completed a four-month yoga teacher certification course, backpacked around India for a month, and attended a 10-day SILENT meditation retreat!
