Melinda Rishkofski is from a small rural town near Pennsylvania in the US. She loved school, was a good student and has been a lifetime learner ever since.
She went on to study Business at college, but also developed a great interest in psychology. She changed her major to Administration of Justice at the end of her second year.
After intern experience related to legal issues in Hong Kong and the Philippines as part of her course, she felt that she wanted to become an international lawyer.
Soon after college, Melinda’s work involved her directly in the huge legal changes happening in the new Russia at that time, and she has now been a highly successful international lawyer here for 20 years.
