Welcome to St. Catherine University. I am a Faculty Assistant for the Departments of Liberal Arts and Sciences and Associate of Arts, and my job is to help both faculty and students. If you have any questions or concerns, please e-mail or call me at 651-690-7768. If I cannot help you outright, I will find somebody who can.
I also currently teach The Reflective Woman course. I have a MA in English and American Literature and English Language from the Leningrad State University in St. Petersburg, Russia, and a second Master's degree in Holistic Studies from the SCU. Holistic approach to healing and education is my main academic interest and I try to apply its principles of assessing any problem or task as a part of a system to my teaching and learning.
I come from the most beautiful city in the world - St. Petersburg, Russia and for 9 years I lived in New York . Our family moved to Minneapolis in 1998 and we simply love it here. I do remember my Russian roots and to honor my heritage I founded the Russian Cultural Center "Russian Soul" and the Russian folk ensemble "Belozer'e." You can learn more about our center and its work at www.rusculturemn.com
