Kathleen Quinby- President and Director -began her career in the field of ESOL and foreign language learning. In 1976, she joined the Peace Corps to volunteer in South Korea for 2½ years teaching University level English classes and conducting teacher training programs. From '78 to '80 she was the Director of Courses in an intensive academic ESOL program in Indiana. She left that position to volunteer for the United Nations High Commission on Refugees to help set up language training for Southeast Asians in a Refugee Camp in Bataan, Philippines. In 1982, she received her Master's Degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages from the School for International Training in Brattleboro, Vermont and was then employed by the school to set up an ESOL project for Haitian migrants in Winchester, Virginia. Finally, in '83, a special U.S. Government program for Cambodian Refugee Resettlement brought Kathleen to Greensboro. Once that program was well underway, she opened Language Resources here.  In that time, she has also was able to travel to set up language programs for Citibank in Turkey and for a computer programming company in Japan.
