In USA, I graduated with BA in Accounting and Information Systems from Queens College, CUNY. Then went on to become a CPA. I also have a degree from NYU School of Continuing Education. I worked at many prestigious jobs in my field, concluding with becoming Dean of College Administration. And then I joined my music composer husband in our music and documentary film production business, and am a Telly- Awards winning filmmaker. My first book, One-Way Correspondence, is a book of lyrical poetry in my native Russian language.You can read some poems here. My Life through My Dresses – Growing Up Socialist is the first in A Journey of a Recovering Idealist series. The next book, “In The Land of The Freed,” is due out late 2019.
