While in Japan, Jere served two years as PTA President for The American School in Japan, six years on the Board of Directors at ASIJ with three years as Fundraising Chair.

Living internationally in Japan and Singapore for 16 years was a gateway to amazing travel; but more importantly, it instilled an acute awareness of global health and mental health issues. Family projects have included working in orphanages in Cambodia and Thailand; medical service in Myanmar and earthquake relief in Japan.
