the daughter of Keith and Patty Withycombe (formerly
Patty Isaly). Last May I graduated from Arizona
State University with a BA in Spanish. I have a
strong interest in Latin American Studies in particular
Chile, where I did a study of Economic Development
and Globalization in 2005. I am returning to school
in the fall to get my Masters of Arts in Sustainability
from the School of Sustainability at ASU. My goal
is to study the relationship between sustainable
practices and poverty reduction in rural areas.
In the long run, I hope to get my PhD and pursue
an academic career that focuses on sustainable economic
development in Latin America.
I live in Scottsdale, Arizona with my husband
Shawn Keeler and our two dogs, Ela and
Minnie, and our two cats, Meaties and Bruce. In
my free time I enjoy golfing with my mom, yoga,
and cooking dinner for my friends.
am very much looking forward to our reunion and
getting to know all of you!
