Immigrated to Canada – to Winnipeg, initially – from Israel in 2008 with her husband and two children.
Born in Kiev, the Ukraine, she moved as a teenager to Israel in 1993, where she acquired a Bachelor of Education at Oranim College, one of the leading schools for educators in Israel.
She went on to open and run a successful and well-regarded daycare in the northern Israeli town of Kiryat-Yam for eight years.
In Canada she acquired an ECE Certificate both in Manitoba and in B.C.
In 2011 she and her family moved to Victoria, and Congregation Emanu-El gladly accepted her offer to re-establish the preschool that used to exist at the synagogue annex. Shalom Daycare was launched September that year. 

Shalom on Hillside was launched September 2018.
