About Galina Briskin

Galina Briskin was born in Moscow, Russia. She graduated from the Institute of Foreign Languages and worked as an Intourist guide from 1956 to 1964. For 14 years after that, she was an editor - first at APN Publishing house and then later at Meditsina. Her work as an interpreter piqued her fascination with freedom and life in America. She immigrated to the United States with her husband, medical doctor and a scientist, who was invited to work at the Salk Institute, and their two daughters. In a few years she became a successful real estate broker and opened her own company.
After her husband's death she remarried. She lives in La Jolla, Southern California. Her two daughters received good education, are professionally successful and happy
with their families. Galina Briskin has five grandchildren born in America. One of them is already a medical doctor, like his grandfather.
