About Vladimir Prokhnevskiy

Vladimir Prokhnevskiy (Dollywood Insider 2018-2019) is a Charlotte, North Carolina-based business owner, national spokesperson for Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child, and a family vlogger. Vladimir and his twin brother own an online educational site for motion graphic artists called ukramedia.com. Aside from running a business, Vladimir spends his free time creating fun adventures with his family and capturing them on video at vladskiy.co. Also, he volunteers for Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child because he once was a shoebox recipient while living in Ukraine. Vladimir was first introduced to Dollywood in 2000 when he moved to the United States. Dollywood was the first theme park he visited in America. Because Vladimir comes from a family of nine children, his favorite thing about Dollywood is the family culture—that atmosphere made him feel at home when he first arrived in the States.
