Anastasia was born in the Republic of Georgia, where she was raised by her pastry chef mother, and at two-years-old relocated to America after her mother remarried. Always looking to absorb as much knowledge as possible, Anastasia immediately took to a life on water when she met and began dating a young captain who introduced her to the industry. With her strong work ethic and perfectionist approach, she joined season four of Below Deck Mediterranean as the third stew aboard the Sirocco. Since then, she has joined forces with former Chief Stew Hannah Ferrier, to launch Ocean International Training Academy, aiming to help people get into the yachting industry. On her free time, she also enjoys cooking and creating new recipes.
