Olesya was born in Kiev, Ukraine, the capital city of this eastern
European country of which her father was mayor during that time. She
moved to Toronto, Canada, when she was in high school and she attended
Havergal College, a prestigious, all girls college prep boarding/day
school. Upon graduation, she attended Seneca College in Toronto, and
graduated with a B.S. degree in Marketing and Business.
graduating, she was hired by Crown Industrial Roofing, a leading
industrial roofing company, to work in sales and consistently maintained
the highest sales and customer satisfaction rating. A few years later,
she was hired to be the Sales and Marketing Advisor for a custom wrought
iron art manufacturer in Toronto. It was here she developed a passion
for architecture and remodeling. In addition, Olesya's mother was a real
estate broker for over 20 years, so transitioning into residential real
was a natural next step for her.
Olesya spent a year in Dallas, Texas, before relocating to Charlotte in 2008. In her spare time, Olesya assists in teaching ballroom and salsa classes and also enjoys playing tennis, practicing yoga, and traveling.
