About Me:

I am currently an Associate Professor of Economics at the Harrison College of Business at Southeast Missouri State University. I was born in Minsk, Belarus, where I  attended Belarus State Economic University specializing in Hospitality Economics and Management. I moved to the United States in 2004 to Portland, Maine, and four years later graduates with a bachelor's degree (magna cum laude) in Economics from the University of Southern Maine. I completed my MA in Economics in 2011 and my Ph.D. in Economics in 2014 at the University of South Florida, Tampa. My dissertation is in the Economics of Healthcare and examines the effect of social interactions on a woman's decision to have a screening mammography.

Outside of academia, I enjoy spending time with my family. I love ceramics and frequently go to local pottery studio with my friends for plate-painting classes. In my free time I like cooking, going to concerts, and exploring the beautiful Cape Girardeau area together with my husband.
