Karolina Chernyak, FPQP™

Senior Client Service Specialist, San Rafael

“We are what we believe we are.” C.S. Lewis.

Karolina works closely with clients and their advisors to ensure the day-to-day ongoing needs of clients are met. She is responsible for completing and processing paperwork, and overall, letting our clients know that she is there to take care of their needs. She prides herself in going beyond financial planning, considering each client’s goals and dreams and working together as a team to help the client achieve them. Before joining Private Ocean in 2016 she worked in a variety of support roles including as a sales and service manager for US Bank.

Fluent in Russian, Karolina is an animal lover, a Tolkien fan and a self-proclaimed “outdoorsy nerd” who would “live in a tent outside the office” if she could.
