Anne was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA, and is the granddaughter of Ukrainian immigrants who fled war-torn Europe during WWII. Anne is fluent in English, Ukrainian, German, and conversational in Arabic. Having grown up in a tight-knit ethnic community, she experienced first-hand how America thrives and flourishes when it welcomes people of all nationalities, religions, and backgrounds.
Anne intended to enter government service after graduating from Penn State University with degrees in International Relations and National Security; however, after beginning law school at Syracuse University, she decided that she wanted to use her experiences and education to help families like her own in a tangible, concrete way. After graduating in 2016, she joined Diaspora Law as an Associate Attorney.
