Sandra Yeaman retired from the US Department of State in 2007 after 23 years as a Foreign Service Officer. As a management officer, she served at US embassies in Qatar, Barbados, Moldova, the United Arab Emirates, Yemen, Madagascar, Zambia, and Eritrea. In addition, she served in consular positions in Germany and Barbados and previously taught English as a Foreign Language in Iran and Romania.

These changes in environment and cultures challenged her notion of what success is. What made it possible for her to thrive in the midst of the change is the solid foundation she received in her childhood years in northern Minnesota.

Since retirement, Sandra has been writing her story and her journey from a young woman seeking adventure to a mature woman who found her mission.

    What a web site. Very impressive. I hope to learn from what you have done. I will be out of town on the next Wednesday, but will be at following Wednesday sessions.

    Well done Sandra.

    So happy I stumbled across your blog with my son’s help. I damaged my phone and lost your number — please send me an e-mail so we can connect!

    Looking forward to hearing from you. Happy New Year!
