I am so excited you have landed here... I can't wait to tell you more about me but before I do, I want to ask you - Do you know the power of your story? I never thought my story was different to any other woman's story. I didn't know that my pains and my struggles would become my very tools to help me build a successful career. Now, I enjoy life travelling, embracing my freedom, becoming who the heck I want to be or become. Embracing my feminine power, my flaws and my (i'm)perfections. 🙂

How I got here...
From a young age I was always fascinated with business, my family come from Lithuania, where I have seen my parents run multiple home ventures to make a great living.
My enterprising ways started at the age of 14 when I first arrived in the UK in 2002 as a young immigrant girl with a suitcase bigger than her. With no word of English or legal rights to be here, I started my journey in Manchester, UK. Later moved to London and began a secondary school in London.
Far from prestigious teenage years, spending many hours on trains commuting back and forth from school, crossing from south to North West London to a culturally diverse secondary school. Learning English every morning reading the Metro. My first job was at a pizza shop, where I often used to be screamed at for not speaking good enough english to work there.
Growing up in London has taught me many lessons, of how to be strong, resilient, diverse, ambitious, tactical, polite (as English do). I may have been a quiet girl, inside I was a roaring rebel. Never quite fitting in, nor in school, college or my later years.
I discovered that in fact I did not want to fit in, and in my early 20’s I choose to pursue my own business ideas. I was determined to succeed at any cost. Even if it meant living on jacket potatoes and baked beans, on which I did whilst in Business School in my early 20’s. I later pursued Legal Training in presitigious BPP Law School in London, only to realise that my true passion and skills lied in creative, innovative and strategic ideas and business development.
In my early 20’s I developed what at the time was the beginning of the Sustainability Boom, so I innovated water vending machines that would dispense water, isotonic, energy and other flavoured drinks into your own bottles. Young and ambitious I was only to later realise this invention of mine would require a substantial Dragon to invest, which at the time of course, I was too young to be ‘investable’ and a ‘woman’.
I later met my mentor who taught me all about capital investments, start-ups, raising money for companies and introduced me to technology and innovations in various technology, R&D, Aviation, Ecology, Software and other sectors. Over the years I have helped raise in excess of 5m of investments mainly in technology and design sectors.
In my 20’s I belonged to many organisations, such as The British Computer Society, London Tech Advocates, the Tech Angels, StartupGrind, Tech Hub, various Innovations Centers, have won multiple awards and accelerator programmes as well as mentored many entrepreneurs in start-up and scale up phases.
I really thought that finding London Tech scene was my best career find, only to go on to stumble across starting Women focused business events and becoming perhaps one of the more influential, completely self-made, global voices online and in the online coaching and business communities.
