About me ✓ Viktoria is a certified mentor

I am a Neuroscientist by training and by a mindset and a product manager and community builder by day. After spending 10 years in molecular biology and neuroscience research, I am now applying my analytical skills and the knowledge of cognitive biases in humans to help companies create great products.

While loving my job, I was always a so-called ""scanner"" - a person who “refuses to choose” and within the last years got engaged in several side-projects: from founding English-speaking science communication scene in Munich and running 3 scicomm organizations there in 2015-2021, to creating a no-code online school for academics to establishing a mentoring program for Russian-speaking students and publishing a podcast. If you are also this kind of person, I am happy to support you and talk about the time, project and team management challenges you probably have :)

I am happy to talk about anything you might find interesting in my profile and experience - neurobiology knowledge, leading and growing a (volunteer) team, no-code products, breaking into Product with a non-tech background and how to find your tribe and network if you're an introvert in a foreign country.

Victoria was very engaged and was very eager to make the session very productive. I really appreciate that she already tried to support me with my issues in advance of our actual session.

Viktoria was so helpful and gave me some great advice. It was my first time doing anything like this so I was not sure what I should do or expect but our call was so informative it gave me some clear ideas of what steps I should take next. :)

The conversation helped me a lot.

I liked that you gave me some examples to explain your points.

Booking a slot in just two days. Thanks for being so spontaneous.
