About the Team

Lena C. Adishian (nee Maranian) – Project Lead

Lena is proud to be commemorating the centennial of the Armenian Genocide through The 100 Years, 100 Facts Project.

Like many Armenians, Lena’s extended family lives across the globe – England, France, Belgium, Germany, Sweden, Argentina, Turkey, Armenia and the United States are all countries they call home. These family members trace their roots back to Everek, Tomarza, Samson, Trabzon, Yozgat, Gurun and Keskin Turkey, as well as Manchester, England. Their stories of how the Armenian Genocide forever changed their families, their personal history and their future as survivors are a source of inspiration to her, and helped inspire this project.

Lena is married with two young children and lives in Los Angeles. She holds dual bachelors degrees in Economics and Psychology, as well as an M.B. A. When she isn’t trying to catch up on sleep she enjoys working on creative projects that apply technology for the public interest and benefit, Armenian dancing, and breakfast with the family.
