"I grew up in Logan, Utah and my three older brothers went to Russia and Ukraine for 2 years as volunteers. When they returned I was amazed by their talent to speak the Russian Language. My family later adopted two kids from Russia so I was forced to learn Russian in order to feel comfortable at home. Three days after high school graduation I left as a volunteer and lived in Russia for the last 2 years. I taught many people English while I was there. I have always loved teaching Russians English"
