In September 1998 I was offered the chance to enjoy Camp Classen YMCA in Oklahoma for 18 months on the J-1 Trainee program. During the process, the person responsible for my DS-2019 was Lois Magee. I never met Lois. She helped me and signed my paperwork.
In September 2000, I was lucky enough to have this opportunity again, this time at Frost Valley YMCA. Again, Lois helped me. Lois was my responsible officer. Still, I never met Lois.
Today I’m proud and excited to announce Lois will be part of the IENA heading up our J-1 Intern and Trainee programs. Its super exciting for me to be able to work with someone that helped me over 20 years ago on programs that played such an integral part of my life and who I am today.
Lois has over 30 years experience administering cultural exchange programs.
We can’t wait to get started and watch our new program grow under her guidance!!
