Olga is an expert in early childhood and development with an array of courses and workshops under her belt, anything from children’s art to play techniques, to learning and heart-mind-wellbeing of children. Books, nature and art had a very profound influence on Olga both in personal and professional sense. As a small child, through reading, she realized the joy and power of books and the importance of illustrations. Over the years, that grew her passion for art, architecture and literature, and led her to advocate for children’s connection to nature, reading, playing and art. Olga’s interests also span into oral traditions of story telling as well as anthropology. For fun, Olga loves to kayak and ski, and she enjoys photography and video production.
