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 then 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 she 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 sipping tea in a Berber camp in Morocco, climbing mountains in Nepal, connecting with students in the favelas of Brazil, and following WW1 paths in the Tyrol of Northern Italy.

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

Prior to joining VISIONS, she helped to launch an Experiential Language and Community Immersion Program in the village of Monflanquin, located in the South of France. She has also served as an Area Representative for international organizations, spent time as an outdoor trip leader, and worked for Outward Bound.

She believes in VISIONS’ disposition towards service and a spirit of generosity, and is excited to promote meaningful interconnection and transformational change. When not at the office, she can be found gallivanting in the mountains and oceans near and far with her husband, three-year old son, and Bernese mountain dog.
