Susan received her undergraduate degree (liberal arts/history) from Kalamazoo College in 1980, and followed part of the original and unique "K-plan" with its emphasis on study abroad. She elected a year's studies in Tokyo, Japan - before the Internet was a "thing!" Susan followed up with graduate studies in the University of Michigan Asian Studies program, earning her MA in 1991. (Go Blue!) She has proudly claimed Yooper roots since 1985 and has since completed an MFA in Creative Non-fiction writing from NMU (and incidently, raised six children and step-s,all of them inordinately talented and smart). Pull up a chair to listen about the life-long value of a well-planned study abroad...or the rewards and challenges of making a blended family work, but only if you have the time. Susan LOVES talking about study abroad. And her grandkids.
