Employee Spotlight: Danika Shtukin, Consultant


At AG Consulting Partners, we are honored to work with a diverse group of people with a variety of talents and interests. This month, we are highlighting Danika Shtukin to learn more about her work and passions outside of the office.

 

What’s your background? Where did you grow up and go to school?

I grew up in Israel and spent some time in Prague, Toronto, Colorado, and Vancouver before my family settled down in Washington. I lose track of all the primary schools I’ve attended but I ended up at the University of Washington where I studied marketing and international business!

 

Can you tell me about your current project?

I’m currently supporting an Enterprise Commercial Strategy and Planning team at a global software company. We help shape various roles in the field including the training they receive, onboarding, community events, compensation, role clarity, and more.

 

 

How are you staying motivated, productive, and sane during this extended period of remote work?

Meditation! I use Sam Harris’s Waking Up app and it’s a game changer. I also make an effort to move my body every day, whether that’s a workout, neighborhood walk, or yoga.

 

Where is the best place you’ve traveled to and why?

This is a tough one since I fall in love with almost every place I visit. Reuniting with my study abroad roommate in Hong Kong was unforgettable, as well as exploring Portugal where I’d like to retire one day.

 

What’s something most people don’t know about you?

I’m passionate about self-exploration, consciousness, healing, and living in the present.
