I was born and raised in Saint Petersburg, Russia. My family and I immigrated to the US in 1991. My two grown daughters have graduated from UW and live on their own. I am educated, caring and easy going. I lead an active lifestyle and exercise regularly. I enjoy traveling, the arts, as well as outdoor activities. I also like to spend time with my two grandsons.I take care of myself: I don’t eat junk food and try to jog 10 miles a day on my way to and from work. I plan to retire in 2015 (or sooner) after 23 years service as a state employee and will have to jog on my own time.
