Josephine Foster

ASSISTANT DIRECTOR
Matthew Dayton from Visions Service Adventures
Josephine was born and raised in Wyoming, spending her formative years in Jackson Hole and eventually in Crowheart (population 300) on the Wind River Indian Reservation. Growing up, she participated in programs like Adventure Treks, The National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) and Study Abroad. All provided her with an opportunity to embrace new perspectives and learn about the importance of community.

Throughout college Josephine studied and lived in the U.K., which ignited her passion for travel and opened her mind to a world beyond borders. Ever since she has been doing her best to engage with the world and has been found in Berber camps of Morocco, climbing mountains in Nepal, connecting with students in Brazil, and following WW1 paths in the Tyrol of Northern Italy.

Josephine’s matrix of international experiences fueled her interest in international education and she received her MA in International Education from the School for International Training (SIT). Her thesis focused on comprehensive internationalization efforts in rural American high schools and presented a framework for schools to incorporate intercultural competencies into their curriculum. 

Prior to joining VISIONS, Josephine helped to launch an experiential language and community immersion program in the village of Monflanquin, France. She believes in VISIONS approach towards service and is excited to promote meaningful connection and transformational change. When not at the office, she can be found in the mountains and oceans near and far with her husband, young son and Bernese Mountain Dog.

Why the VISIONS Dress Code?

Our decisions about dress code are quite simple—we are guests in our host communities, not tourists. We work with elders, nonprofit leaders in their professional settings, indigenous communities that abide by conservative attire, members of religious and spiritual groups, and others whose cultural and professional beliefs abide by conservative and appropriate attire.
