Ukraine Program Manager

Oleksandra has over 10 years of combined experience as a program manager, consultant, and researcher in fragile settings. 

Before joining the Veterinarians Without Borders team in 2022, Oleksandra managed dozens of local, national, and international projects in Ukraine, focusing on collaborative transformations, stakeholder dialogue, and social change. She developed and implemented several programs, including employment promotion and social cohesion grants in conflict-affected areas. As an organizational development and evaluation consultant, Oleksandra has also had an extensive UN Development Program engagement portfolio working in Ukraine, Moldova, Afghanistan, and Georgia.

Oleksandra views her Ukraine Program Manager role as the perfect match for her social work degree, project management background, and passion for animal welfare, along with the possibility of making a difference in her native country.
