About Yulia

I'm a wife, a mother of two daughters, a Corporate development professional, an entrepreneur (successful exit), a board advisor, and a Sloan Fellow at Stanford Graduate School of Business . Additionally, I'm a Global citizen with broad experience working in the UK, Switzerland, Austria, and the US.   After 10+ years of corporate finance experience focusing on cross-border M&A transactions and partnerships, I am highly skilled at delivering ambitious goals, understanding people and their motivations, and building relationships.  I excel in organizational skills and prioritizing among many competing projects to deliver optimal results. I am a collaborative team leader known for building a strong culture of inclusivity and result orientation.    Read more: https://www.gsb.stanford.edu/programs/msx/life/students/voices/yulia-barinskaya

Why do I coach?

I have been raised in a family that has always supported my career aspirations. When I was in college, my father would often tell me about what he and his colleagues did at work. My mother would introduce me to people from different professional spheres, who helped me determine my career path. Unfortunately, not all students receive similar guidance from their families. Thus, I decided to give back to my community by mentoring college students seeking career or education advice.
