When the war broke out in Ukraine in the Spring of 2022, Alyna and her daughter were two of the many forced to say goodbye to their home in search of safety.
As a highly accomplished educator in Ukraine with extensive experience working in the post-secondary sector, Alyna arrived in Hamilton with a strong desire to use her skills to help the Ukrainian community in Canada. This opportunity came when she was hired to work at Wesley, shortly after her arrival. Along with helping support fellow newcomers, Alyna also works as a college instructor using her recognized credentials to full capacity.
Still a newcomer to Hamilton, Alyna loves to explore nature and local businesses and continues to look for ways to turn her new city into a second home for her and her daughter.
