After seven years away from the Leadership Institute honing her skills in the high tech sector, Yana Myaskovskaya has returned to the Leadership Institute to help the Development Department in strategy and operations. She started with LI as a 2014-2015 Associate with the Charles Koch Institute’s Koch Associate Program.
Originally from Moscow, Russia, Yana discovered the ideas of individual liberty and limited government after reading Atlas Shrugged as a college freshman.
Yana received her dual Bachelor of Arts in Art Theory and Practice and Animate Arts from Northwestern University and holds a Master of Arts from George Mason University in the History of Decorative Arts.
For the past seven years, Yana has worked for Salesforce and several early-stage startups focusing on technical data integrations and how business strategy drives effective communication and decision-making.
When not actively promoting liberty, Yana enjoys hiking, stand-up paddle boarding, tennis, yoga, tea ceremonies, and Russian enamelware. Yana and her husband David reside in the Milwaukee suburbs with their two young sons, their Siberian cat, and many aquariums.
