Chrystya Geremesz, Treasurer

Born to Ukrainian Immigrants, Chrystya was raised in a small Ukrainian community near Philadelphia, PA. She moved to Texas in 1980 to attend Southern Methodist University and studied Business Administration. Her love of her heritage spurred her vision for a Ukrainian community in North Texas and she pursued developing the foundation for the Ukrainian American Society of Texas which informally began in 1981 and became a non profit in 1983. In 1999, she assisted Father Andrij Dwulit to form St. Sophia’s Ukrainian Catholic Church in The Colony.  For over 40 years, she has been very instrumental in the growth of the Ukrainian Community in North Texas.


As one of the founding members of UAST, Chrystya continues her service as a Board Member while advocating for Ukraine through public speaking, media interviews and educational activities in the community 

In 2018, she launched the North Texas Holodomor Committee to bring public awareness to The Ukrainian Genocide in 1932-33, known as The Holodomor.  Her committee created a display at the Dallas Public Library for the public which also included films and discussions for over 4 weeks.  Professionally, Chrystya is a full time Realtor with Ebby Halliday and specializes in homes and land.
