I was born, raised and nurtured in Ukraine. This is also where I received my Diploma of a Specialist in International Relations and a Translator-Referent from the Lviv State University. Later I came to the USA to pursue my graduate education, where I received my M.A. and Ph.D. in International Studies degrees.

Translating and interpreting have started as my hobbies, and over time have turned into my career and passion. And I love it. Even the deadlines. In fact, work wonderfully under pressure - must be all the adrenalin surge. :)
