- EXCELLENT KNOWLEDGE OF THE SHORT-TERM ACCOMMODATION SCENE. TALK TO HER IF YOU NEED A ROOM OR AN APARTMENT.
- Knows where and how to buy tickets. She will even get you your ballet tickets without delivering a diatribe, like some on this list would, about Bolshoi being nothing but a tourist trap of a particularly gaudy type.
- Good at planning trips and logistics of any sort.
- Knows the Siberian direction and herself regularly travel to Tomsk.
- Has working relationships with international dating agencies. More importantly, she understands how these things work and how they don’t.

You can of course get her to do the actual looking, and she will, but her value is in years observation and intense participation in the scene.
- Archives, accounting, keeping things in order are among her strong points. Secretarial support is one of several valuable services you can get from Olesya.
- Able to translate on not too technical subject.
Her unperturbed personality allow Olesya to work with clients that would get axe-murdered with other providers of local support.
- Slow to respond. Will not engage is “feel it out” communications. Born and bred in Siberia. The Yes or No type.
- Pragmatic attitude. She will not go out of her way if she does not have a ready solution for you. Only standards requests will suit Olesya.
