My general education is Human Geography, with Bachelor degree from Kazakh State National University, MA degree from Indiana University, USA (2005).

My general job is lecturing sustainable development, geography, research methods at the university, where the educational language is English. My overall teaching experience is over 15 years. I'm an open hearted person, have great communication skills, local to Almaty since my birth, and keep thinking still, inspite of many international travels I've made, that Almaty is the best city in the world.
I will assist you also in tour customization and trip planning in order you to keep the best memories about Almaty and the country! I'm also easygoing with kids, as a mother of two, 9 and 11.
