Marina Alexandrovna is a born optimist and a children’s speech therapist. With inconceivable ease (thanks to years of work, experience, and professionalism), she finds an approach for any, even the most difficult and aloof child.

Maria Alexandrovna is a hiker with a track record, as well as a fan of relaxing on the beaches of her home country. She is the proud owner of an enormous but sweet dog named Lola, a cross between a Berne shepherd and a collie.
Maria Alexandrovna’s favorite book, the one that inspires her to overcome any obstacle with a smile and acheive great feats, is Victor’s Frankle’s ‘Say YES to Life’.
Maria Alexandrovna is opening to a new chapter in her life: with the children grown up, long-awaited repairs are being made in the apartment, and she finally has her own spacious room that functions both as her home office and bedroom.
