About Equipped To Go

Equipped To Go provides a number of services to individuals or groups desiring to be culturally adept while traveling, living and working in foreign countries.

We meet each individual, church or non-profit organization where they are by providing customized workshops and resources that will prepare them for their cross-cultural experience. Through an initial consultation we can determine the need of the organization and provide just-in-time training or a coaching relationship to help them reach long term goals.

Combining passion with practice, she is effective in communicating the ‘how’ of missions as well as the ‘why.’ I wholeheartedly recommend her to assist your church in its mission!
