Deb Smucker

Deb’s love of travel and Latin America began during her college years in the 80s. She traveled to Costa Rica as part of a study abroad program through Goshen College. During her 4 months stay she lived with a local family, studied Spanish and volunteered at a rural nutrition center.

After college Deb returned to Latin America as often as possible – traveling for a year from Tijuana to Argentina, leading high school volunteer groups in Ecuador and Costa Rica for several summers, directing a summer teaching internship program for college students in Ecuador, and finally joining EcoTeach in 1999.

Deb has a B.A. in psychology from the University of Waterloo in Ontario, and an M.A. in Student Development Administration from Seattle University in Seattle.
