Leya has marketing background and knew little about IT until she started working at an internet company two years ago. It was in their IT department that she was first exposed to the acronyms and complexity of high-tech lingo. After struggling to conform, or at least get through meetings without looking up words in the dictionary, Leya finally decided to blog about the frustrations of being a mid-tech girl in a very high-tech, fast paced world. Faced with the inevitability of co-worker laughter at the jargon Leya didn't understand, she chose to laugh at herself instead via blogging! Pseudo-named, The Russian Stamp, there are occasional hockey references and other Russian side notes in her blog...(GO SHARKS!!) Besides blogging, she enjoys traveling and is always planning her next adventure. She is also back in school working on her MBA because her Russian parents said, "bachelor degree OK, but nu??? Vhere is masters??" Leya's family works in the tech industry and she is glad to finally have something to contribute to dinner table discussions. Leya blogs to encourage her other technically challenged co-workers to join in spirit...if you can't beat em', blog about it!
