Alumni Story: Lisa Caldeira '07

After graduating I got into the habit of uprooting my life every few years. After working as a development consultant for not for profits in New York City, I then spent two years in Mozambique as a organizational development adviser for local non-governmental agencies. Currently I live in Anchorage, Alaska and manage the largest homelessness shelter in the state. I would say that my LALACS degree oriented my life towards being able to better exam the social, political, and cultural currents of a community in order to work with them to create solutions for progress. Plus my ability to learn Portuguese while at Dartmouth sparked a curiosity with the Lusophone world.
