About Galina

I am 19 year Bay Area resident living in the affluent waterfront community of Redwood Shores, just a few miles south of San Mateo. I am a mother of three to two wonderful human children, ages 14 and 23, and one furry child, my Italian Greyhound, Tonic.

Raised in Moscow, Russia, from childhood I was involved in various activities including ballet and figure skating (thanks to which, my whole family can stand on skates and skis). As I grew into my teenage years, I found a growing passion in sports like basketball and soccer, but stopped soon enough to realize that I was growing older and needed to take a different direction in my life.

While still living in Russia, I earned my bachelor’s degree in International Economics at the Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO). A few years after I met my husband in 1993, we moved to the beautiful state of California to raise our family.

Today, I enjoy my morning routine of preparing my family for their day and taking my dog on our daily journeys around the neighborhood. In my free time, I enjoy yoga, studying, reading, socializing with friends and spending quality time with my children.
