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.
