Message from the Upper Midwest Regional Director

I am excited to share India Zietsman will be joining the Upper Midwest team on Monday, March 9th. India grew up in Pasadena, California and graduated from the University of Oregon with a degree in International Studies and a minor in Spanish. Before joining NPH, India worked as the Development and Administrative Assistant for Kakenya’s Dream in Arlington, Virginia for nearly two years. She comes from an international family and loves to travel. She recently traveled to her father’s native country, South Africa, to explore the gorgeous beaches and mountains with her grandfather. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, practicing yoga, and spending time with her dog, Charlie. India’s role on the Upper Midwest Team will be serving as the Development Manager overseeing our associate young professional board, our travel program and engaging individuals to support NPH. Please join me in welcoming India to the NPH family.

We are so excited to be hosting our NPH Seattle Students in Minnesota. This will be a weekend full of events you won’t want to miss. Attend one or attend them all! Alexis, Jazmin, Abigail, and David will be sharing their story and their experience growing up in NPH.  These four students were selected to attend the Seattle Institute where they will spend 10 months in Seattle learning about the principals of leadership and advancing their English. The Seattle Institute was founded in 2011 as a program of NPH International to continue Fr. Wasson’s legacy by developing a future generation of leaders for our NPH homes. Be sure invite your friends, neighbors and family to rsvp for one or all of the festivities.
