I was raised in Oregon, but have spent the majority of my adult life living outside of the U.S. Before coming to Vietnam, I worked in the field of education, intercultural exchange and non-profit youth organizations in Europe, Brazil and the United States. I received my M.A. in Intercultural Communication and my Doctoral studies in Educational Administration through George Fox University. There is nothing I would rather be doing and no other place I would rather be at this time in my life. Thank you to all the wonderful people who have welcomed us to this country and community.
