RJD has been Olga's long term vision ever since 2001. After experiencing the Taglit-Birthright Israel trip, Olga took on leadership roles at her college Hillel and remained a lay leader for Russian Hillel cross campus program. Later, she helped form JUF's Russian Jewish Leadership Forum (RJLF) and served as a vice chair on their board as well.

In July 2013 Olga was selected by YLD and Oy!Chicago for Double Chai in the Chi: Chicago's Second Annual Jewish 36 under 36 list for her outstanding leadership. Olga's goals are to continue exploring her Jewish identity, absorbing the American culture and maintaining her Russian heritage. Through this process, she hopes to create opportunities for other Jews to do the same and share their experiences. Currently she works as a Real Estate Broker at  Dream Town Realty .
