We are a tandem couple in the U.S. Foreign Service. Alex joined in March 2010 and was assigned a public diplomacy job in Cotonou, Benin. Andy joined in January 2013 and took a one-year management job in Washington, D.C. In early 2014 we both begin Spanish training in preparation for our next post in Guadalajara, Mexico, where we will both be consular officers. Along the way we’ve added sons Flynn (born May 2011) and Jonah (born August 2013) to the clan.
