At Odessa National Maritime University she was on the Faculty of Transport Technologies and Systems Sea Transport Operations & Management. This year she will earn her MBA in Shipping and Logistics from Middlesex University (Lloyd’s maritime academy).

In addition to her responsibilities with the Agency Relations Management department, Zhurbenko will sit on the DA-Desk Compliance Committee, the independent internal body that establishes compliance policy for DA-Desk.
