Alina is originally from Romania. In the year 2000, Alina decided to try a Christmas without snow and planned a trip to Arizona. It was love at first sight. The sunshine and palm trees captured her heart, and six years later she decided to move permanently to the Valley of the Sun.
Alina’s work history includes being an Executive Assistant with a Phoenix-based investment advisory firm, a Program Coordinator for the PHX Navigators (a volunteer program at Sky Harbor Airport), and a Youth Mentor through the University of the Nations in the Netherlands, which relocated her to South Africa to focus on multiple programs in health clinics, high schools, prisons, etc.
Alina recently wed the love of her life in January 2018. She values her time with family and friends and enjoys being in the kitchen. Baking is definitely a stress reliever for her.
