About Jill Dobbe
Jill is an overseas educator and author who bops around from country to country and school to school. The interesting places Jill has seen and the unique people she has met finally prompted her to write it all down in her memoir, HERE WE ARE & THERE WE GO. During her first 10 years abroad, Jill was accompanied by her husband and two toddlers. Their adventures took them to Guam, Singapore, Ghana, and Mexico, where they survived typhoon Yuri, were nearly shot by presidential guards, and faced down a pack of African lions. After 10 years of living overseas, Jill’s family returned to the U.S. and experienced their version of reverse culture shock. Since writing her first memoir about her travels, Jill has lived in Cairo, Egypt, Gurgaon, India, and Tegucigalpa, Honduras, where she presently resides with her husband, Dan, and their Yorkie-Poo, Mickey. When Jill is not shopping in the markets for cultural artifacts or trying to improve her Spanish, she is working as an elementary school administrator and writing her second memoir.
