We would like to give a warm welcome to Evelina Dzelzkaleja, our new addition to the Backyard family. Evelina hails from Riga, Latvia, and comes to us courtesy of the Baltic American Freedom Foundation (BAFF) Professional Internship Program. She is taking a one year sabbatical from DDB Riga to work with us here in Marina del Rey.
Evelina will be working directly with Managing Director/Partner Chris Zander. Her area of focus will be in sales and marketing. Evelina has a Masters Degree in Social Science and Management Entrepreneurship and speaks five languages.
She is an avid dog defender and lover, lonely piano player and water sport fan (she is, however, afraid of fish). We will instruct you on how to pronounce her last name at a later date but the literal translation is Iron Blacksmith. Also if you do not know what Riga Black Balsams is, please Google immediately!
