“I’m a Mom who appreciates the beauty of KN in my life”. Nadia
My heart did a happy dance and few cartwheels when I heard this sentence! To tell you the truth that’s how happy it makes me every time someone shares some work of appreciation for KN. But today I’m here to talk about Nadia- another #KNsupermom, who always enjoys finding and creating new style and beauty in her life while balancing her businesswoman work life and taking care of her beautiful family.
Born and raised in Moscow, Russia, at the twilight of the Soviet Union, Nadia was initially trained to be an English-language teacher at Moscow State Pedagogical University. She later switched her career in business and finance after completing MIT’s Sloan School of Business MBA program at Sun Yat-sen University in Guangzhou, China.
She first began living in South China in 2006 and has been based in Hong Kong since 2011. Since 2012 she has been a financial planner at AIA Insurance. As a dual-citizen ex-pat who has lived in 5 different countries, she loves helping families to get settled in Hong Kong and plan their insurance needs for the future.
“Never limit yourself. You can be a mom and pursue your dreams simultaneously.”
Aside from being a successful businesswoman, Nadia is also a mother of two beautiful girls – Sasha and Anna. Both of her children are committed as a dancer right now. Within Russian culture, there is a lot of emphasis on ornate presentation, which is something she is trying to instill in her daughters…along with trying to teach them Russian 😊.
In the following Q&A segment, we are going to get to know more about Nadia’s work life, and of course… her jewellery preferences!
As a mom, how do you try to be a role model for your kids?
As a mother, I always try to stay positive, emotionally balanced, and confident. I also try to be consistent with what I say and do. I do encourage my children to not leave their goals unaccomplished.
As a working mom with two kids, how do you find time for yourself?
It is very difficult to manage time being a working mom, that too with two kids 😊. However, I prefer taking nature walks/jogs sometimes by myself and sometimes with good company along. I also enjoy swimming, shopping, catching up with friends, and learning something new every day.
How does jewellery have its place in your life? What about your specific KN pieces?
I have tender feelings for anything that shines and sparkles. I wear some jewellery every day as it enhances and empowers my psyche.
I have my favorite earrings from KN, which I treasure, and which became an integral part of my wardrobe. I also have Jackie Freshwater Pearl Necklace from KN which would help me add beauty.
What is the most important trait of a woman for you?
One of the things very important for me is to nurture my every relation compassionately whether as a mom, a friend, or a businesswoman.
Don’t we all totally agree with Nadia! We are so proud to feature Nadia today in our blog as she wears her KN pieces with elegance and power and KN is truly blessed to have the rest of all you wonderful women who love your KN pieces.
