Every Friday I am going to feature a woman that I adore. They exude all the qualities of an Alpha Female and I want to dig into their lives to get some nuggets of knowledge to help us all live happier, healthier lives balancing life & work.
Definition of an Alpha Female
An Alpha Female is a powerful and assertive woman. Her confidence is due to being an intelligent and intellectual problem-solver. Being an Alpha Female is a State of Mind based on choosing ambition and being proud of it. She strives for a happy and healthy work/life harmony.
Type A Alpha Females often come across as strong willed and selfish. When we stay true to our authentic selves and stay true to our mission we shine. A true Alpha Female puts the needs of herself first without sacrificing her principles or dignity. She fills up her cup or gas tank first so that she has enough energy for her friends, family, and coworkers. A true Alpha Female strives for synergy with the world around her. She wants a perfect work/life balance but knows that it requires being true to your priorities and what makes you happy. She is never complacent about striving for better and nurtures relationships with the people in her life.

How are you an Alpha Female?
I lead by example. It is very important to me to stay true to my values and not compromise them even if the path is harder. Sometimes that means taking a stand and sometimes it means doing more work but at the end my values are always a priority in decision-making.
Does work/life balance exist?
Yes. But it is something that I am always evaluation and equilibrating. I found it is something that need constant attention as in my line of work there is no daily schedule or routine.
What are you most passionate about?
Inspiration. To me, I have to wake up full of ideas, goals and inspiration. I am passionate about the feeling I get when new ideas are sparked and developed. The snowball effect of progress and goal-crushing feeds my soul.
What are you daily health habits that keep your immune system boosted?
Playing!!!! I have two kids-2 year old and 4 year old, and the daily habit that I feel unhealthy without is my daily dose of playtime. Sometimes when I am away from them I get too busy to take the time outs and see the world thru the eyes of my children and that’s when I start to feel run down. Racing, playing hide and seek, painting, playing pretend…are my daily vitamins.
What is your weekly fitness routine like?
I live the life of no routine. It is very adventurous and unpredictable. No two weeks are alike but I am always on the go. My preferred shoe is a running shoe and although I don’t schedule in fitness activity in my calendar or attend regular fitness classes at the end of the day I feel fit and healthy.
How do you challenge yourself fitness wise?
By keeping up with my 2 energetic children. Throughout the day the physical component they require from me is astonishing. After having two kids I feel like I am in the best shape of my life and always trying new things. I feel like a prehistoric person when there was no gyms but everyone was physically fit because they climbed, raced, gardened, carried things… Being a mom is like running a never ending obstacle course lol.
What are your daily habits for winding down at night and reducing stress?
I love incorporating essential oils into my daily routine. I am addicted to diffusing lavender before bed. I am also in the habit of reflecting on the best things that happened each day. Before putting the kids to be we all share that was the best part of our day and it really melt away the stress and puts me in a state of positivity.
What are you daily/weekly nutrition habits that keep you well nourished?
One of my favorite things in the morning is a glass of cold water with freshly squeezed lemon juice. It really sets the tone for the day for me. I also incorporate raw honey into my diet everyday. It was something I was raise with in Russia. It has antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-fungal properties, aids digestion and strengthens the immune system. I vary my source since honey produced from different plants offer different benefits but keep in local.
What is your definition of happiness?
My personal definition of happiness is a positive state of mind. It is how much I am enjoying every moment of my life. Irrelevant of struggles and challenges being happy to me is embracing the moment, being excited about the future and the possibilities, and being grateful for everything and everyone in my life.
