Never having lead a team before, she made it a priority to develop leadership skills by conducting research, learning English and entering a University to further her studies.

While leading a great team of colleagues at work, she managed to graduate with honors from the Tver State Agricultural Academy. In addition, as a result of hard work and collaboration, her team achieved high production results even in some of the most difficult situations.
