Mariya serves as Office Manager for both CREES and the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS). Mariya holds her bachelor’s degree in History from Novosibirsk State University and graduated in Summer 2022 with a Master of Science in Education (M.S.E) in Administration in Higher Education from the University of Kansas. Prior to coming to the United States, she lived in France and worked as a translator and interpreter at Airbus Company. Being passionate about French language and culture, she taught French language to undergraduate students at KU as a GTA while working on her master’s degree. Originally from Russia (city of Novosibirsk), she hopes her linguistic and cultural background, as well as her organizational skills strengthened through her time as the co-president of International Spouses and Partners of Princeton University, will help CREES in carrying out its mission. Mariya will be leading Russian-language story time every first Sunday at one of the Johnson County Public Library branches.
