Maryna is the Program Coordinator for the Executive Leadership Seminars within the Leadership Division of The Aspen Institute. In this capacity, Maryna works closely with leading businesses and high-profile organizations around the globe to develop, design, and execute tailored transformational experiences to meet a set of particular objectives.
As a result of her upbringing, Maryna shares a sense of rootlessness which means that “home” is everywhere, but nowhere at the same time. She was born in Austria and has lived in Slovakia, Ukraine, Georgia (the country), and the United States. She’s fluent in English and Ukrainian. Maryna is a true people person who finds great joy in making, developing, and maintaining meaningful and authentic connections and relationships with others.
In 2019, she received her B.A. in International Relations with a minor in Business Administration & Management from Boston University. Prior to joining the Aspen Institute, Maryna had the privilege to work with the Ukrainian National Information Service (UNIS), the InterGovernmental Consultations on Migration, Asylum and Refugees (IGC), US Embassy’s America House, Pardee School of Global Studies Initiative on Forced Migration and Human Trafficking (FMHT), and USAID project Governing for Growth (G4G).
