Area of Expertise:

Professional Experience:
I have over 20 years of experience in Public/Media Relations Field, 20 of which I have worked for the U.S. Government‘s development agency. In search for new professional opportunities and challenges, I left a small town in Western Ukraine for the capital, where I started my first communication career with the U.S. Embassy. After three challenging years, I was selected for one of the most prestigious programs offered by U.S. Government - the E. Muskie Graduate fellowship. My journalism/PR studies inspired me to focus on development and life improvement in Ukraine. Thus, I became a part of the U.S. Government development agency (USAID) team that works to bring positive change by facilitating democratic development processes, promoting economic growth and improving social services. During the past 18 challenging months for Ukraine, I have been supporting the Agency‘s wartime communication from Germany where I currently reside.
