PH International Staff in USA

Ann Martin
Executive Director

Ann Martin came to PH International as Executive Director in 2006. For a decade, however, she worked as a consultant and trainer for PH Projects throughout Russia, Georgia and Azerbaijan as well as in Ukraine. This was in addition to her full time position of 20 years as Director of a Vermont family resource center and her own private consulting business. Ann's introduction to PH came many years ago when the eldest of her two sons went on a PH exchange to what was then Leningrad. Now, nearly 20 years later, she is honored to be directing the organization that has so influenced her own life and the lives of thousands of others here in the US and abroad.

Ann has a BA in Sociology and Social Work and an MA in Post-Soviet Gender Studies. She has worked throughout the countries of the former Soviet Union with a special emphasis on gender issues, women in civil society and community development. She looks forward to continuing to build on the PH experience in our existing partner countries and to expanding that work with partners in new regions.
