Viktoriya is a data geek. She always tries to avoid emotion-driven decisions and guess-work, and focuses on analysing data prior to taking any decision. Numbers do not lie, and Viktoriya really likes to dig deep into data to find answers.
Viktoriya also loves automation. If there is any repetitive task that is taking the time of a human being, and it can be automated, Viktoriya will automate it. "Because no human should even spend their productive time on brain-numbing boring repetitive tasks!"
