Ms. Mykka Fisher - Elected Trustee
Ms. Mykka Fisher
Born in America, I have lived in Texas, Maryland, and Georgia in the USA, and The Netherlands and Greece in Europe. I hold a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) from Baylor University, Texas, USA (2000), specializing in Human Resources Management, a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from Johns Hopkins University, Maryland, USA, (2005), specializing in Human Resource Management, and an LLM from Leiden University, The Netherlands (2009) focused in European Union Law. I am currently pursuing a Doctorate of Business Administration (DBA) from Liberty University, Virginia, U.S.A., (2018), focusing on International Business. I also hold a certificate in collective bargaining from Cornell University, School of Industrial and Labor Relations (2007).
From 2001 to 2008, I was part of the human resources and labor relations team at the National Electrical Benefits Fund in the Washington DC region, the 3rd largest Taft Hartley pension plan in the U.S.A., with over 14 billion dollars in assets. As Director of Human Resources, I was responsible for labor relations, as well as day-to-day compensation and benefits administration. I also negotiated a three-year collective bargaining agreement worth 19 million dollars, the largest in the history of the firm. Since leaving the NEBF, I have been raising my two children, Maximilian, “Max”, a Pinewood Kindergarten student, and Catherine “Cat”, a Pinewood Pre K1 student. I also manage an international market research company, Transkinetic Strategies LLC, a firm which I own with my husband.
In addition to work and study, I have supported a number of charities, including anti-human trafficking organizations (A21, Thessaloniki and the Atlanta Dream Center, Atlanta, Georgia), childhood disease prevention (March of Dimes, Washington DC) and wounded veterans (Walter Reed Medical Center, Washington DC). I am currently an active member of the Pinewood Parent Teacher Friends Association (PTFA). While this would be my first time as part of a school board, my extensive experience with personnel matters, pan-European labor issues, and my broad business background would offer a unique perspective to the board. I look forward to serving enthusiastically if given the opportunity
