Indira and her husband, Peter, have lived in Fairfax County for three years - they have planted roots and made Northern Virginia their home. Indira and Peter both love Fairfax County, and they believe that our shared values can bring a better future for this special community.
Indira holds a Bachelor’s degree in International Economic Relations and a Master’s degree in English Language Translation. As both an entrepreneur and writer, her professional experiences include working in publishing and advertising.
The American Dream
When Indira came to the United States, she very quickly embraced American ideals and freedoms. Eight years after immigrating, just over one year ago, Indira earned her United States citizenship - she became an American by choice. As a first-generation American, Indira welcomes the many opportunities that come with this new chapter in her life.
Born in the Soviet Union, Indira understands first-hand the dangers of a one-party state and a highly centralized government with unchecked power. It was through her humble beginnings that Indira came to truly appreciate how extremely blessed we are in America.
A Dedication to Service
For almost a decade, Indira volunteered for a non-government organization with Special Consultative Status to the United Nations, responsible for charitable contributions, community developments and rehabilitation efforts world-wide.
Indira has helped to oversee the planning and operation of charitable tours throughout Europe, South Asia and North America. Indira spent several of those years facilitating the daily operations of a major community center in South Asia, including English language translation for educational courses - it is there that she learned the power of service, compassion, and selfless care.
Indira’s devotion to volunteering is perhaps most illustrated by her leadership in the world of giving. In 2013, Indira formed the WE Foundation, a charitable organization dedicated to raising funds for the care and protection of children without parents in under-developed communities.
Indira now spends some of her free time volunteering at the Fairfax County Animal Shelter. Indira proudly served the County of Fairfax as an Election Officer during the 2022 elections. These are just a few ways that Indira is giving back to her local community.
