Jenya has a wealth of wisdom and experience that makes her an exceptional mentor and career coach. She has an authentic warmth, and kindness that brings about the best in those she works with. As my former manager at Google, Jenya helped transcend my career in the way she guided me from a place of strength, knowledge, honesty, and love, while reminding me that I held the key to my own answers. In our conversations, she balanced her business savvy and problem solving skills with compassion. One of the most meaningful things she helped me practice was allowing self-compassion and inner trust to serve as the foundation of my career. Having had the opportunity to work with Jenya has been both a privilege and an honor. She has taught me invaluable life lessons I will carry with me always.
Jenya's optimism, leadership, and authentic caring inspired me when we worked together many years ago. I recall how she showed up every day at work with positive energy, compassion, and encouragement, championing our team through good and bad times.
Jenya was, by far, the best manager I had ever worked with up to that point. She is truly a bright light.
Jenya has been an amazing mentor and life coach to me. She was there for me professionally when I transitioned to various roles across Google, as well as personally when I experienced several life-changing moments. She strikes the right balance of truly listening and providing practical guidance. She's deeply human/caring while carrying immense expertise in the areas of business, family/ work balance, and navigating critical life moments.
Jenya is a thoughtful mentor who is able to deeply attune herself to the unique needs, strengths and challenges of her mentees. She creates a strong basis of trust by tailoring feedback with genuine care - allowing for truly honest, practical, and actionable conversations. During my time working with Jenya, I grew by leaps in bounds in my career thanks in no small part to her encouragement, guidance, and advocacy. I would recommend her coaching to anyone.
Jenya first and foremost cares about me as a human being, and her priority is my overall well-being, and supporting career decisions that enhance that well-being. She has always taken the time to listen to me, understand my perspective and goals, and then advise me using her years of experience. I've seen Jenya take an incredible amount of attention and intention to those who she mentors, and I am confident that because of her purposeful guidance I am better at what I do and who I am.
Jenya enabled me to experience freedom and joy at work. Observing how she manages teams at Google, I have always admired the thoughtful coaching she does, inviting us to do the most important reflections to align work with our fuller selves.
Jenya as a coach in 3 words: Empowering, Empathetic and Exceptional

Jenya, thank you for being a true, inspiring leader.
Jenya is one of the most kind, talented and passionate leaders I have ever worked for. I remember leaving the interview with her hoping, from the bottom of my heart, that I would have the opportunity to learn from her and be a part of her team.
She gives thoughtful, actionable feedback, is insightful when providing advice and leads by example in more ways than I can say. Anyone who can leverage her coaching is lucky and privileged.

I'm honestly in awe of how well she managed the session, and it made me want to become a facilitator.
