I was born and raised in Russia, in a town on the very boarder with Ukraine named Belgorod. I knew that I wanted to be an educator since middle-school, however God’s plan for where and what I will teach has surpassed my personal expectations.
I have earned my Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Elizabeth City State University, North Carolina. My Master’s degree in Business Administration along with a Supply Chain Management Certification came from East Carolina University, North Carolina. I am currently working on finishing my PhD at Old Dominion University, Virginia.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband and two kids, whether it is relaxing at the beach or exploring new places together through spontaneous weekend trips.

The official American Marketing Association’s definition of marketing is: “the activity, set of institutions, and processes for creating, communicating, delivering, and exchanging offerings that have value for customers, clients, partners, and society at large. (Approved July 2013, emphasis added). Exchange that creates value for all stakeholders involved is at the heart of marketing. Sadly, it has been misinterpreted, misused and misrepresented by many companies. In my opinion, a Biblically-rooted approach to marketing is not only helpful, but imperative to fully understand the value of this discipline. As an educator, it is my responsibility to help students understand marketing in its entirety and see it as a tool that should be used to facilitate a fair exchange that benefits the customer, the company, and society at large.
To achieve positive learning outcomes, I strive to create a classroom environment where everyone feels comfortable and welcomed. I firmly believe that student engagement is the most important factor that contributes to effective learning, so one of my primary goals is to maximize student participation. I am accomplishing this in a number of ways. First, I realize that students’ engagement in the material is directly correlated to my own engagement in the material as an instructor. Second, I aim to teach instead of lecturing. I structure my classes as an open-dialogue, where I ask my students questions to stimulate discussions, which promote understanding, rather than mem the material together. Finally, I incorporate group projects and assignments that promote team-building skills and allow students to develop deeper collegiate relationships, which also make them more involved and interested in the subject.
