Throughout the course of her career, Dr. Seidler has worked in a wide range of countries, including Afghanistan, Armenia, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Egypt and Syria, as a government-level project manager in donor-financed projects. From 2006 to 2010, Dr. Seidler served as a project director and change management consultant for the corporatization of the Afghan National Power Utility DABS, financed by the World Bank, and later on, the Asian Development Bank. One of the greatest highlights of her career was her involvement in bringing electricity to Afghanistan.

Dr. Seidler currently serves as the founder and president of the Dr. Petra German Medical Clinic in Kabul, with special emphasis on women's and children's health. Since its inception, the health care practice has aimed to provide the German standard of medical care to patients in Afghanistan. Dr. Seidler maintains responsibility for overseeing all business operations as the owner of the Clinic. In recognition of her contributions to the global community, Dr. Seidler was recently featured in Elite Women Worldwide, the premier source for prominent and successful female leaders. In addition, she was selected in 2008 to receive the Silver St. Peter of Honour Medal from the Russian Orthodox Church for charity and for founding and implementing the Easter Music Festival in St. Petersburg, Russia, from 1992 to 1998.

A respected authority in the field of change management, Dr. Seidler has enjoyed the challenging nature of her work.

Dr. Seidler received formal education at the University for Economics and Finance of St. Petersburg, where she received a PhD in international economic relations and a PhD in finances and procurement. She is also recognized as a Chartered Translator for Russian language and a Certified Expert of Consolidation of accounts. As Dr. Seidler moves forward with her career, she intends to continue the development of her outpatient clinic in Afghanistan since the number of patients is increasing almost on a daily basis. She also plans to attract international donors for funding of the clinic expansion to other cities in Afghanistan; seeking even greater challenges. A results-oriented individual, Dr. Seidler attributes her success to her ability to bring change and results while also recognizing and respecting cultural diversity.
