What is your role at Devision?
As a Senior Executive Assistant, I am in charge of the Administration Department. I maintain contact with clients and partners over all kinds of administrative subjects, such as references and invoices. I also keep track of different deadlines and make sure that all payments are duly made.
I participate actively in the process of implementing and following the ISO standards for which we are certified. I am also part of the team that prepares the documentation for EU-funded and other projects. I take care of the working environment so that all my colleagues feel comfortable and are able to concentrate fully on doing their jobs.
Managing all the documentation and the communication with suppliers are other responsibilities of mine, as is organizing company events. And last but not least, I help in the recruitment process. I get in touch with potential job candidates on behalf of the company and do brief interviews with them to get to know each other.
Getting work done at the office!
Why did you join Devision, and what has kept you here?
Eight years ago, I came across Devision when I was looking for a completely different professional challenge. From the first moment I entered the office, I sensed a great camaraderie between all my colleagues. The young team and the exciting projects they work on made me choose Devision.
Ever since that fateful day, the people here became part of my family. Working with them is an absolute pleasure, and I feel calm and appreciated. The long road we traveled together and all the successful projects we created made me proud to be a part of Devision.
What are three words to describe Devision?
Innovation. Professionalism. Devotion.
How has Devision helped you in your career development?
Working at Devision takes me to new and uncharted territories every day, enriching me with new knowledge and skills. In addition, I learn a lot of exciting things from my colleagues, who are all exceptional professionals in their field.
I gained tremendous experience in communicating with clients from all over the globe, and I managed to create many valuable contacts. Another thing I learned, which is very beneficial for my life outside of the office, is handling stressful situations with total calmness and thinking analytically.
How do you describe your work personality vs. your home life personality?
I am really consistent and organized in my work but often distracted and chaotic in my personal life. Sometimes my friends and even I are pretty bemused!
Do you have any hobbies, go-to weekend activities, or long-term passion projects you’re working on?
I just love exercising and traveling! Each morning, I get up at 6 AM, and the first thing I do is a short but intensive workout. Mountain climbing is also a passion of mine – until now, I’ve done it only in Bulgaria, but I hope someday I will be able to mountaineer abroad.
When I get more free time, I write blog posts about fashion, cosmetics, and raising children because I want to share some useful and exciting information with the world. I also have a YouTube channel and love hip-hop dancing, though lately, I don’t have the time to practice it.

Each minute that I manage to “steal,” I give it to my family, especially my two beautiful daughters. We love to travel together, to take walks in nature and to eat ice cream. I feel at the top of the world when I see the joy on their faces just from spending time together.

Before working at Devision, what was the most unusual or interesting job you’ve ever had?
Before I started at Devision, I worked in an NGO whose mission is to drastically change education in Bulgaria. I traveled to all parts of the country, visited different schools, and met dozens of wonderful children and devoted teachers. I also participated in the JUMP Math training of teachers – an innovative Canadian method of mathematics teaching.
What is the best vacation you’ve been to?
Each trip leaves unforgettable memories and emotions in me. The first thing that comes to my mind, though, is one snowy Christmas in Vienna.
What did you want to be when you grow up?
I dreamt of working in a bank just like my mother. So I collected all sorts of papers, signed them, and put them in folders, and when I was fed up with it, I drew dresses, imagining myself as some great fashion designer. But, alas, drawing is not one of my talents. Therefore I graduated in Accountancy and later in Business Administration, and I buried myself in the documentation.
If you had to eat one meal every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Pasta! I’m pretty sure I was Italian in my past life.
