From Russia to Cambridge

Joanna Greenlee ’05, a graduate student in Hebrew Bible at Harvard Divinity School, updates us on life since graduation.

In 2005 I headed overseas to Vladimir, Russia, where I spent two years teaching English, studying Russian, volunteering, and riding trains. Upon my return to America I began working as a job developer at a nonprofit organization in St. Paul, Minnesota, where I assisted refugees who were looking for employment. But I couldn’t stay away from school too long, and last year I began a Master of Divinity program at Harvard Divinity School. The main focus of my studies is Hebrew Bible, and I work at a homeless shelter in Cambridge. I hope to get my Ph.D. and teach.
