Putting My Experience
Larisa is a Jewish immigrant from the former USSR who moved to the United States in 1979 when she was 6 years old along with her parents and two sisters under Religious Asylum. Larisa grew up in what is now Sunny Isles Beach after moving here in 1987. She went to North Miami Beach Senior High School before moving to NYC for College and eventually a career in advertising for one of the largest media agencies in the world managing over $300 million in advertising. There she learned vital people, money and management skills that have helped her excel in her former position as Commissioner, Vice Mayor and Mayor.
After meeting her husband in New York City and having two of their four children they decided to move back to this City. What makes this City so special is dear to her heart from growing up here and returning to raise her own family of four children with her husband.
