Originally born in Ukraine and raised in New York City, Svetlana moved to Colorado in 1999 after visiting the state and falling in love with the mountains. She lived in various cities throughout Northern Colorado exploring what they had to offer before settling down in Timnath, Colorado with her family.
Svetlana earned her Bachelor of Science with a focus in Business Management and Finance from Brooklyn College. While working towards her degree, she was a marketing intern for a Financial Advisor at Smith Barney. Upon graduation and moving to Colorado, she helped start up and manage two newly opened branches of Smith Barney in Broomfield and Boulder.
After starting a family and living in Greeley at the time, Svetlana wanted to be closer to home and transferred to the Fort Collins branch. She worked with a team of 3 Financial Advisors focusing on client service and operations. In 2007, the team along with Svetlana, left Smith Barney and transitioned to UBS Financial Services Inc.

Svetlana assisted in the transition and learned a lot about the RIA world.
