About the Speaker

Heidi Michelsen grew up in multicultural Southern California and has lived in Central America since 1992. She began her sojourn in Mexico in 1988 where she studied Spanish and Latin American culture, then lived in El Salvador during its civil war and was privileged to accompany the process of post-war reconstruction. While in El Salvador, she helped facilitate small grassroots development projects in urban squatters’ settlements as well as rural areas. She moved to Costa Rica in 1997, and has volunteered extensively with Nicaraguan immigrants in impoverished urban communities while also working with student groups from North America. She directs the Praxis Center in Costa Rica which hosts study abroad and service learning programs for students from many U.S. universities. Heidi holds degrees in theology and ministry and received an honorary Ph.D. from Valparaiso University in 2018. She has done additional coursework in psychology and environmental studies. She absolutely loves sharing her passion for Central American history and culture and serving as a bridge to facilitate student learning. She lives with her son in Casa Adobe, an ecumenical intentional Christian community.
