If there’s one thing Juri doesn’t like, it’s being bored. That’s why when fortuitous events brought her some unexpected downtime in 2019, she wasted no time. After a car accident and weeks of hospitalization forced her to stand down for a few months, she did what any other normal person would do: she got a puppy to keep her company, and started a business to keep her sanity.
As a former banking executive with two school-aged children, Juri has been far too familiar with the day-to-day struggles of balancing one’s professional and personal obligations. Today, as the founder and owner of Balance RVA (BRVA), her mission is to help others achieve this balance without having to sacrifice their own self-care. At her 10,000 sq ft building in Richmond’s West End, she provides her members with a distraction-free place to work and upscale office amenities, while also offering an abundance of health and wellness resources. “Balance RVA is built on the belief that people shouldn’t have to choose between their careers, their families and themselves,” she says. “Everyone can, and deserves to, have it all.”
Juri graduated Magna Cum Laude from Cornell University with degrees in both English and Psychology. She attended graduate school while working full-time and earned her Master’s in Business Administration (MBA) with Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK) honors from the University of Richmond’s Robins School of Business. By the age of 26 she had been promoted to the role of Senior Vice President at one of the nation’s largest banks. Her expertise in running financial operations has been published across the globe, and in 2013 she was recognized by the University of Richmond as an inaugural winner of its “Top 35 under 35” award. In addition to running Balance RVA and its sister location (Carytown Coworking), she is a licensed insurance producer, realtor and real estate investor. She lives in Richmond, VA with her husband and their two youngest children. In addition to the daily struggles of working parents, she is passionate about mental health rights, child abuse prevention, and alternative healing modalities.
