Maryna Yudina, BSN, RN, MMS, MD (Ukr)
Maryna Yudina received her MD from Odessa National Medical University, one of the leading medical universities in Ukraine and worked as a Staff Physician and a Chief of Staff at an Odessa Military Hospital. After 13 years of hard work and exciting changes, she was offered the chance to take a different path and move to the United States to work in a variety of hospitals in Alaska.
Maryna's experience with proactive principals has allowed her to be able to be a leader in team-oriented professional goals, activities and studies.
She values the skills and ability to communicate and lead goal-oriented research studies to completion. She transitioned into her current work as a Neurofeedback practitioner after seeing the transformative effect it had on her clients suffering from PTSD, ADHD, addictions and depression. The natural quality of the program, using the body's own signals to cue its behavior and encourage self-regulation was very appealing and prompted her to train at the EEG Institute using the Othmer Method, where Maryna continues her professional development to this day.
