For 46 years, Gail has fostered innovative perspectives and resilient leadership to the associations where she has worked and volunteered. From 1992 until her retirement, Gail served on the NAFSA staff, first as Senior Director, Special Programs, and then as Senior Director, Organizational Advancement. Gail's volunteer leadership at NAFSA spanned 1976-1992 and included chair of the Section on U.S. Students Abroad (SECUSSA); two terms on the NAFSA Board and chair of several Board committees. She served as the study abroad representative on the Field Service Steering Committee, and the COOP Committee, both of which helped establish the underpinnings of NAFSA's current professional development programming.
