"Be the change you want to see in the world"

I was Born and raised in Romania, taught in Pharmaceutical Sciences and Business Management, career started in the same industry. Curious about research, I continued to work my way up into Drug Development and quickly discovered the passion for Project Management which, happy to say, today I have even more than before. I have exercised being a Project Manager for more than 6 years now in a professional environment and also on a personal level, being my own PM when moving to Canada.

I am a very curious personality, looking to understand the WHY and find the ideal HOW. What I like the most about being a PM is the opportunity to connect people and find and give them the right tools they need to be best versions of themselves. I am a true believer that with an open communication and collaborative approach anything can be achieved no matter how challenging and I strive to inspire the same to anyone I interact with.

Nowadays project management is a demanded skill for life, not only a professional domain.

I was born and grown in Armenia. After 7 successful years of professional career growth in commercial banking I shifted to the world of project management, where I find myself self-actualized and happy. By putting together my banking experience with the project management skillset, I enjoy the projects I am usually engaged in.

I love to do volunteering and support to the professional community development, as I think this is one of the keys to changing the world and making impact. I truly believe that hard working and consistent professional development will open new perspectives and horizons for each of us.

The Books and Beyond webinar series are the right place and right way of getting inspired, learning and growth.
