MPS is pleased to have one of our former Business Development Associates back on the team. Ira Casteel has an MA in International Development from American University’s School of International Service, and earned her MBA from American University’s Kogod School of Business earlier this year. She has consulted with startups in Israel and interned at American Councils, an international education nonprofit.
Prior to grad school, Ira worked at Apple and AT&T. She spent two years as an AmeriCorps volunteer, working first with the Red Cross in Oregon and then at a Conflict Resolution Center in Maryland.
Originally from Ukraine, Ira (pron. “EAR-ah”) speaks Russian, Ukrainian and Polish. She enjoys hiking, biking, camping and traveling.
