As a tennis player I was ranked number 1 in the Ukraine and number 350 in the world before leaving WTA professional competition in 2000. I was fortunate to train under Svetlana Medvedeva, the top Russian coach and mother of world-ranked number 4 Andrei Medvedev.

Training for 8 hours a day from the age of 7 to become a top professional tennis player taught me extreme discipline and techniques for pushing myself beyond my limits. I was a professional athlete for 18 years, traveling the world and learning tactics and methods that are necessary in sports and in life. This experience helps me in everything I do today.

As a young woman living in Kiev with dreams of coming to America, I applied for and was awarded a full tennis scholarship at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles at age 20. Overcoming many challenges in my efforts to come to the United States, I arrived in 2000 to join the LMU tennis team and achieved number 12 ranking in the U.S. in doubles, qualifying the LMU team to go to NCAA for the first time in LMU’s history. As a team we won the WCC, beating Pepperdine University in the finals – another first for LMU.

I received a degree in marketing at LMU and started my career in Internet marketing after graduation. Today I am pursuing my online marketing career while staying very active in tennis through lessons and instruction.

I pursue life with ambition and passion, but for me it’s just as important to be warm, friendly and caring. I love people and I enjoy finding ways to help my friends improve their lives. In my spare time I like to swim, hike, ice skate and meditate. I love to talk with my friends about spiritual subjects, philosophy, nutrition and fitness, travel, politics and more.

I teach tennis at a private court on the Westside in L.A. as well as offering in-home tennis lessons in the following areas: Los Angeles, Venice, Santa Monica, Brentwood, Bel Air, Beverly Hills, Pacific Palisades, Marina Del Rey and Century City. Valley; Encino, Studio City, Tarzana, Glendale.  

Throughout my tennis career I have been to many championships and personally met many of tennis’s great stars. Following are some of those memories:
