  • Beschreibung

    We are a professional couple who are interested in serving communities globally. Most recently from Montana, we have lived overseas since 2006: 11 years in Singapore, two years in Tunisia and most recently in France. We have had many wild adventures overseas, including Maureen being bitten by a black adder in Sweden, hot air ballooning in Myanmar, spending ten weeks in a tent (twice!) in Eastern Europe and the US, and being overrun with land leeches in Malaysia. We are both very social creatures, love people and learning about their cultures, ways of life, and worldviews. We both have worked in education for many years. Doug was an assistant principal at the Singapore American School and Maureen was a professor of psychology and administrator at the National Institute of Education. We have twice taught English together in Xinjiang, China, and Doug has led teams of teens on service projects in Bhutan, Cambodia, India, Laos, and Nepal. We love nature and spend as much time as we can in the outdoors, camping and hiking and fishing.

  • Was könntest du arbeiten?

    We both have strong people skills and very good administrative and teaching/counseling skills. Maureen is a licensed Child Psychologist (US) and a former secondary teacher, university professor, and published author and editor. Doug is a former high school principal and school counselor. We both love the outdoors and have camped, backpacked and hiked around the world. Maureen loves to teach, garden, write, and to cook, especially dishes from other cultures (Doug is so lucky to have her as a wife!). She particularly enjoys preparing healthy italian, mexican and thai dishes. Doug enjoys working with his hands. His idea of the perfect day is to have a long list of chores and to check them off one by one. He loves to clean and organize and is superb at both (Maureen is so lucky to have him as a husband!). He is also a talented artist with a good eye for design, and has some experience with simple carpentry. Maureen is fluent in French and Doug is very very good with charades.

  • Was noch ...

    We are a well traveled couple.We both worked in Singapore for more than a decade, from 2006-2017 and traveled extensively in Asia. Maureen lived in France as a student many years ago and we spent 6 months there in 2020. France is probably our favorite country and we try to get there at least once a year no matter where we are living.
