Our storytellers in Episode 11 are:
Jeff, a retired real estate professional, joined his first Global Volunteers team in 2003, seeking solace in service after the death of his wife. He discovered that teaching conversational English in Puglia, Italy launched his healing journey. Since then, he’s become a Global Volunteers team leader in Cuba, Vietnam, and on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation in Montana.
Cindy is a producer of special events and corporate programs at Disney World in Orlando, Florida. She’s served on 20 Global Volunteers programs since 1997 in the USA and abroad as both a volunteer and a team leader. She has a dual Master’s Degree in Development and Human Resources Management, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Theatre and Drama. She says she’s drawn to the “adrenaline rush” of ambiguity in her personal and professional life!
Lynn, a recently retired sales manager at Florida Trend, attributes her passion for Greece to her father, who was born in Crete and immigrated to the U.S. when he was seven. That’s the primary reason she chose a Global Volunteers program to Crete in 2013, and has returned twice since. Most recently, Lynn served on our Cuba program.
