Olga Gilburd Writer


Olga Gilburd lived in Russia and Ukraine before coming to the United States. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Nursing and a Master’s Degree in Public Service. Listening to many life stories as a nurse, she realized that although the pursuit of happiness is the main reason for immigration, emotional wellbeing skills and happiness are mostly overlooked. She studied positive psychology, created a blog about happiness (, and was invited to give several workshops on a positive attitude.

She is currently writing a book about happiness, which provides simple concepts and effective exercises for a happier attitude and features the Jewish wisdom on this subject, showcasing the zest, the vigor and the love of life of the Jewish people.
