Maureen Crammond

Peru Director

Matthew Dayton from Visions Service Adventures
Maureen Crammond is a former middle and high school English teacher from Pittsburgh, PA, with a passion for seeing the world and connecting with new people. After serving as a leader for VISIONS Cambodia in 2019 and a Director in the Dominican Republic in 2021, she is ready to return as Director in Peru this summer!

Maureen began traveling at a young age to visit extended family in Europe and has been answering the call for voyages ever since. Maureen attended the University of Pittsburgh, earning a Bachelors in both English and Studio Arts, and later a Masters in Teaching. While studying, Maureen taught at a primary school during a semester abroad in London, where she had a chance to truly immerse herself in a community overseas. She has continued to seek opportunities that produce meaningful connections and broaden her knowledge of the world at large.

In addition to traveling, Maureen holds a deep love for the outdoors and understanding our planet. A lifelong hiker and camper, she enjoys getting away from her busy day-to-day life and slowing down in the middle of the woods. She loves to use her experiences with nature and traveling as inspiration for her writing and artwork.

Exploring nature has always played a role in Maureen’s life, but her true passion is connecting with and supporting others. She is a firm believer that human connection is vital for our future, both as individuals and collectively, as a planet. She is excited to form new connections with VISIONS participants and our local community in Peru, where she will be joined by her leader team!
