An American Ukrainian from Chicago, I attended Miami University in Oxford, OH where I received a bachelor’s in Journalism and English Literature. I wrote for The Miami Student, Up fashion magazine, and the Miami Quarterly on campus.
I interned with The Oxford Press in Oxford, Ohio during my sophomore year for a semester and then in Washington, D.C. with The Fund for American Studies, specifically the Institute on Political Journalism program during the summer of 2010. The following summer I interned with Cardenas Marketing Network as the PR intern in downtown Chicago.
I currently serve as the new Deputy News Editor with the Air Force Times.
In July 2013, I was selected to be a Paul Miller Washington Reporting Fellow hosted by the National Press Foundation.
I am bilingually proficient in Ukrainian, and grew up learning Ukrainian arts, culture, history and literature.
