Bio Olga Kniazeva, PhD
Prior to joining ThroughConversation™, Olga’s life experiences led her on an exciting career path in international security, politics and intercultural communications.
After experiencing the collapse of the Soviet Union, she discovered new worlds through traveling and working with a number of prominent academic and policy making organizations such as NATO Parliamentary Assembly in Brussels, Harvard University Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, and Women Waging Peace. She also taught political science at the University of British Columbia. Olga holds a Doctoral degree in Political Science from the University of British Columbia, and a Master’s degree from the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs, University of Pittsburgh.
An immense shift in her life came in 2010 when dealing with an ongoing personal crisis. With her emotional and physical health deteriorating, she tried working with various therapists in hopes of resolving the issues, albeit with very little success. That is when Olga discovered ThroughConversation and experienced a methodology that quickly brought happiness and health back into her life. Having experienced the process first hand, Olga decided to dedicate her time to making ThroughConversation more accessible in Vancouver and internationally. In 2012 she joined ThroughConversation Personal Development as a managing partner.
Today, Olga lives happily with her daughter in Vancouver, British Columbia and enjoys racing sailboats overseas.
