OUR TEAM

LESYA MERENA

Co-founder

I am a co-founder of iCook After School, a company that offers nutrition education and cooking classes to elementary schools all over the country. I started iCook in 2014 with Olga. We founded iCode with similar mission in mind - to bring the same quality of coding and STEM classes to our partner schools and kids all over the country.  I am a proud mom of a two-year old girl and I want my daughter and kids all over the world to have access to best education resources to help them find their passions and authentic voice.

Co-founder

I am a co-founded of iCook After School. We have grown to become a national company and I had a pleasure to travel all over the US to watch kids participate in our classes and find a new love and appreciation for healthy and balanced eating. Now, I am excited to bring coding and STEAM education to kids and our partner schools. Technology is becoming our new reality and we believe that digital literacy and skills derived from it will open many doors for young creators and innovators. 

I have an MBA degree and a Bachelor degree in Management.

Jospeh Issa, Ph.D. 

CONSULTANT

My name is Dr. Joseph Issa. I'm an associate professor in computer science.  Over the years, exposure to higher education not only heightened my interest in academic pursuits but also influenced my efforts to assist others in their journeys. Education, in any form, is an amazing process of exploration, reflection, and confirmation. I enjoy providing students with guidance through this process, so they achieve their overall academic goals. As such, I look forward to working with you as you take a significant step towards your goals.
