I have been fortunate to supplement my formal education and work experience with two sabbaticals that combined work and travel. The energy and creativity I bring to work assignments is a direct result of living and working with unique people in diverse environments. When I come back from such an adventure, I am completely energized and ready to plunge into work again.
April 1997 - September 1997
During the first half of this 6 months, my husband and I managed an eco-lodge in the jungles of Costa Rica. Learning the language and studying the culture and environment filled our leisure time. For the final half our our sabbatical, we canoed in Maine's North Woods, hiked and climbed in the Canadian Rockies, and happily visited with several relatives.
September 1993 - October 1994
This sabbatical was also international: a month in Nepal volunteering at the Institute for Biodiversity, followed by several months traveling throughout the United States, and ending with two jobs in Costa Rica. The first was teaching Advanced Placement calculus in a San Jose high school and the second was managing an eco-lodge near the Panamanian border.
