The Story Behind Destiny Benders

We all know each other…well kind of. We meet at conferences, recruitment trips, forums, webinars. But do we really know each other? Do we know how we got to where we are? What motivated us to start a career in international education? What keeps us motivated? Why we do what we do?

We started wondering these things as well. So we decided to start a podcast to meet these inspiring international educators and get to know them. Join us as we share their stories with the world.


Meet Your Hosts

As an international education professional, Jessica has worked in the field for more than 20 years in a variety of roles and locations, but always with the objective of helping students, scholars and peers achieve their international education dreams.   
As a TCK, Jessica spent many years moving around trying to find “home”, but now she has finally settled in the south of England with her husband and two boys (Maximus & Felix).  When she’s not working a podcast, Jessica enjoys exploring museums & historic homes, hunting for unusual antique ceramics, long walks in the English countryside and dreaming of where she’ll travel to next.
