Pack the Plane was created by Natasha and Vitaliy Poylin with the help of Stacy Mytty, in response to the ongoing crisis in Ukraine. This organization has both personal and professional roots. Vitaliy is a GI surgeon at Northwestern who was born and raised in Kyiv, Ukraine. Dr. Poylin and his family emigrated to the United States when he was 18 year old, but he has maintained close contacts in Ukraine. Until the conflict broke out, he was routinely involved in continuing surgical education and research at Kyiv Regional Hospital. Natasha is a nurse practitioner and Stacy is the CEO of her own company: Dream Source Solutions. We came together to take action and help in a meaningful way.
