Lois spent the first half of her career in Paris where she earned her masters in International Relations at Sciences Po. She then worked in project management at a major French bank and got into teaching business English when her four kids came along. The family moved to Boston in 2003. While managing a busy household, Lois kept a foot in the professional world, working in a non-profit serving the homeless and then in international education at Northeastern University. Trilingual, Lois and her husband travel extensively, to keep up with far flung family and friends, and are always on the look out for new birds!
Lois joined PAS as an outreach volunteer in 2016, shortly after moving to California. She then joined the board for a short stint as Newsletter Editor before switching to part-time Program Manager which has grown to full-time Executive Director as programs have blossomed.
