I was born and raised in Ukraine in a family of engineers. So, when the time came to decide what major to choose in University, I had no doubt but to be an engineer. I’ve graduated with master’s degree in electrical engineering.
In 2006, me and my husband immigrated to Denver, CO and I worked at Lighting maintenance company as Outside Sales Associate. I’ve always had passion for lighting design and curiosity for new lighting technologies.
When we moved to Seattle, I was offered a job in Seattle Lighting and really enjoyed working on residential projects. I passed the American Lighting Association (ALA) exam in 2007. We now live in Bellevue, raising two boys, love traveling and exploring the nature. Olena Obay
