Tsoleen, an accomplished leader who is in her early 40s with a Master’s in Nonprofit Management, wanted to move to Armenia as she held close to her heart this feeling of hope and pride for a better Armenia. After the 44-day war in Artsakh, she knew she could serve as a bridge between the Diaspora and Armenia. In the U.S. Tsoleen worked in community development for 21 years, most recently as the Executive Director of Project SAVE Armenian Photograph Archives. She also has an extensive background working on political campaigns on the local, state and federal levels. All this taught her the importance of public support and building consensus, skills she wanted to share with Armenia.
