about me

I’m a first gen American, my parents immigrated from Ukraine, and we speak Russian! In my free time you can find me at the gym or Yoga Box! I’m a sucker for soft gooey brownies, sushi, and tea!

I Became A CARE COORDINATOR Because...

I’ve been interested in medicine, ever since I was little and my grandma was a well known doctor in Ukraine. I’m currently studying human-biology at UCSD, in hopes of going to med-school and becoming an IVF/Gyno physician. 

My Roles at the clinic are...

Welcoming patients and creating connections. Providing support on our patients health journeys. Answering any and all clinic, business, and healing program related questions. Ordering lots of fun new teas to try! (You can find them in our waiting area)

I Joined Create Wellness Because…

Although I’ve always wanted to learn about other methods of healing, Create Wellness really opened my eyes to natural medicine. Ever since I got this opportunity, the clinic has pushed me to explore every aspect of health including with myself. I am so grateful, and can’t wait to continue learning and exploring the world of wellness!
