Meet The Team
Team Chapel Arts 2022
Alex Droznik lives in Mount Vernon, NY with his wife Kellie and children Jack and Serafima. Jack recently started at kindergarten at Chapel and is loving the school so far! Alex has been an avid runner for years but only recently got into competitive running. This will be his first half marathon so wish him luck! Alex works for Bed Bath and Beyond as Vice President of Procurement. When not busy with his work and his family, Alex tries to catch up on his favorite sci-fi books and soccer games having been a lifelong Arsenal F.C. fan. Having grown up in St. Petersburg, Russia, Alex has always had great respect for arts & drama and is excited to help raise money for Team Chapel.
My name is Gabriella and I love to run, read, and travel my way around the world. I grew up in Ukraine before moving over to New York City in 2016. I recently graduated from Concordia College New York with a master's degree in Childhood Education. My husband and I are active members of True Light Lutheran Church in Chinatown, Manhattan. In the beginning of 2020, when Covid-19 hit NYC hard: the streets were empty, the schools were closed, and I started to run. These days I work as the Second Grade Teacher Assistant at The Chapel School, in addition to working on my teaching certification. In between my schedule I love to run because running allows me to set my mind free and helps me to release tension from the workday.
