Our Board

Inna was born and raised in Kremenchuk, Ukraine. Having lived in various states around the US, her job in the Oil & Gas industry brought her and her family to Houston in 2021. Inna holds BS in Mechanical Engineering with minor in Business from Louisiana State University. She transferred to LSU from the College of Engineering in Kyiv Polytechnic University (KPI) and International University of Finance in Kyiv, Ukraine. Even after 13 years in the United States Inna continues to honor her Ukrainian heritage through authentic cooking and baking. When the full scale invasion of Ukraine began, Inna could not remain a simple bystander, so she joined HTX4UKRAINE as an event coordinator. Even her two little kids have contributed to our fundraisers by creating art in exchange for donations, or in the case of her 6 month old daughter Ana, exchanging smiles for donations.
Inna’s family and friends are still residing in various cities across Ukraine, some currently occupied by the invading russian army.
