She studied abroad in Poland, China, and Russia before teaching English in Kazakhstan, where she worked closely with FLEX students and alumni. While serving as a FLEX participant recruiter for three seasons, she traveled to several FLEX countries, particularly in Central Asia. She worked with American Councils full-time in DC since 2017 on the Secondary School Programs Enhancement Team before joining our team in February 2019.
Now a Program Officer for the International Student Support Team at American Councils, Paige’s responsibilities include evaluating host family applications, travel requests, and Local Coordinator onboarding. Paige also helps with capacity-building and host family outreach.
