Jane, would you share a few word on your background, please?

I was born in Dushanbe, Tadjikistan. My parents came to Dushanbe from Leningrad, Russia and Harkov, Ukraine. My Mom was a professor of Russian language and literature. My Dad, master of sports in boxing, was also a professor, but at the Institute of physical education. My grandpa, farther's Dad, was a professor of Math and used to teach at the Institute of Mathematics.

What was your first job?

My first job was at the "office depot" in Israel, it was a lot of fun.

Do you like to travel?

I love to travel! When still in Israel I used to love travelling all over the Europe. Here, in Canada, winter weather always makes me crave sunshine and I really want to go somewhere closer to the ocean!

Do you have a hobby, Jane?

Unfortunately, I don't have much time for the hobbies, but when I get lucky, I love to read, listen to good music. I also decided to learn skating.

What is the most challenging part of your job?

When I do the eyelash extensions, it takes about 2 hours and you have to be concentrated and pay attention all the time, eyes get really tired.

And what is the most rewarding part?

I love the results of my hard work, when my clients get happy. This is really awesome!

What is success for you?

Success for me is lots of clients, happy and satisfied clients, grateful clients! Monetary part of the business is also important. In a long run, I would really like to open my own salon, large and popular.

Jane, what would you still like to achieve?

I love my job, I add a part of my heart into every little project. I hope all my clients are happy and satisfied. I also hope that in the near future I could do even more for our lovely ladies, as I always continue learning. So far, beside eyelash extensions and make up, I am also a cosmetologist, I do facials, laser treatments and many more. This is my lifetime ambition to help ladies become even more beautiful, more confident and learn to love themselves, their appearance.

Thank you, Jane, we wish you all the best, lots of clients and all your wishes to come true!
