Staff, Foreign Partners and Advisors

During 1997, Sabre welcomed Irene Danysh as part-time Public Relations Officer in the Cambridge office, after Marta Baziuk accepted a post in Ukraine. Ms. Danysh, a graduate of Brown University, has been a teacher of English literature in Ghana, and is now teaching courses to recently arrived Haitian immigrants in the Boston area. Also in 1997, Sabre benefited from the services of Harvard graduate student intern Kevin Nichols, which continue into 1998, and of Vadym Kovalyuk, a Muskie Fellow from Ukraine. Mr. Kovalyuk helped in Web document and CD-ROM production as well as in shipment preparation at the book warehouse. Ward Detiège from Belgium was helpful in both Sabre's office and at the warehouse.
