Married to Lawrence Allen Povlacs, Director of Engineering for Tri-Delta Systems; 2 boys - Evan (11) and Patrick (10); I enjoy traveling in the U.S. and abroad, learning about U.S. and British history, debating politics, reading, listening to music, cooking, bike riding, hiking, shopping, and spending time with my family and friends. 

Currently, I am a Group Leader for EF Tours and have successfully led 6 tours with EF Tours.  My most recent trip was last summer with a group of 2 to Paris, Provence, and Barcelona.  Stay connected for information and meeting dates and times for the 2020 tour to Berlin, Prague, Krakow, and Budapest.  

I believe in the relevance of global travel as an emotive, aesthetic, and important experience for our students and even adults to have in the 21st century. Increasingly, U.S. colleges and companies are reaching out to foreign students because they have the global skills to compete in our changing economy and workforce.  We must continue to train and expose our students to the relevant experiences of a changing economy and travel does that and so much more!
