Prior to working for NYU Langone, Anya was Director of Payroll, Benefits, and Employee Engagement at Hillary for America. This position saw her supporting over 4,100 campaign staff in 46 states. Anya’s work experience also includes project management and event production for cultural institutions at the United Nations, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Carnegie Hall, and The National Arts Gallery. Her passion for the arts is rooted in her early training in classical ballet at the Bolshoi Academy in Moscow. This deep connection informs Anna’s exemplary skill and success in the complex world of funding, personnel management, and production. Now residing in Queens, New York, Anna hopes to cultivate her connection with local artists, and support their diverse and enriching contribution to Queens culture and community.

Anya joined QCA’s Junior Board because of her desire to be more engaged with local Queens artists and communities. She feels strongly that her skills and experience can support artists in the creation of their work and the engagement of their community. In her spare time, Anya enjoys reading literature in English and in her native Russian language, as well as attending the latest ballets from American Ballet Theater and Preljocaj.
