Oksana (Ivashchenko) Hansen was born in Krasnodar, Russia. My family moved to Sacramento, California in 1989. I attended University of the Pacific (UOP) in Stockton, CA graduating cum laude in 2005 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Philosophy with minors in Pre-Law and Business. I met my future husband, Erik Hansen, during my studies at UOP. Upon graduation, we moved to the Bay Area and were married in September 2009.
In our spare time, Erik and I enjoy golfing and traveling the world together.
We are passionate about education and feel that education is a core foundation for fostering the long-run success of our society. We sponsor the Hansen Family Resilence Scholarship at Nevada Union HIgh School.
Living a healthy lifestyle has become important to us, after my mom was diagnosed with Cancer, diabetes, and recently stage 4 Chirrosis of the liver. Food, exercise, and your lifestyle have serious effects on your overall well being.
