Marketing and fundraising
Educated as a research engineer in technical electrochemistry. However, I love people more than chemistry: to communicate, help them, and create better conditions to develop their potential. Since 2015 I have been working with staff in the role of HR (Human resources). I like to find the best professionals and interact with them. I will have great pleasure participating in the training and development of people.
Since 2017, I have been working for ARENA CS. In addition to HR-related functions, I also had the opportunity to lead and develop an educational project – schools of event organizers Great Event School. From 2018 to 2022, more than 120 students studied at the School. I take great pleasure in organizing and directly participating in developing event management skills.
With the start of a full-scale war against Ukraine, I immediately focused my efforts on assistance and volunteering. I helped the civilian population and Territory Defence Units in the Kyiv region.
I am proud to be Ukrainian. I am proud of my people because I saw for myself that our nation is unbreakable. I believe in our victory and am ready to make every effort for a better future for Ukrainians who suffered from the effects of the war.
