After graduating from Houghton College, she moved to Thailand, where she was certified in TEFL and learned to speak Thai. She taught at Bangkok Christian International School for one year, before joining Bridges to the Nations in Pattaya, where for two years she ministered to children and women who were vulnerable to or involved in the sex industry.
