My Story

I am a Belarus native World Champion World Record Holder water skier. I started skiing at 12 y.o. In the pool in Novopolotsk, Belarus with my coach Arkadiy Genov, who taught me all the fundamentals and work ethics of Water skiing. I graduated from the University of Louisiana at Monroe with Bachelor degree in marketing and management. Since 2008 I have been living in Florida. On a daily basis me and my dog Boomie spend our days at Jack Travers Water ski school where I train with Jon and his family. Me and Jon got married in 2014. I coach a little bit as well and enjoy doing so.
