What life learnings do you bring to your role as a Business Banking Advisor?
I LOVE to cook and it has given me a lot of insight into what it must be like to be an entrepreneur. When you put your time and effort into making a meal for the first time, there is always a stress that it won’t taste good. This is similar to owning a business, as this is exactly what can happen when someone launches a new business, service or product.
Favourite thing to cook?
I grew up eating Russian food so that’s my go-to, but I also really enjoy Arabic and Greek food. I love to experiment with different recipes.
What are you doing when you’re not at ATB?
I love to travel. It’s so rewarding after working hard. I find it the best way to relax. My goal is to travel two or three times a year to somewhere new – my ‘visited’ list is quickly growing.
What has been the most rewarding advice you have ever gotten?
"It’s not what you have achieved in your life that matters. What matters the most is what you have helped others achieve in their lives. That is the true meaning of life."
