Gail Oesterle

Gail wanted to improve her Spanish, so she decided to spend a term studying in Costa Rica. The trip had a profound effect on her that went beyond mastering a second language.

“It ignited a fire in me to keep traveling,” she says.

As the president of Enactus and its direct-trade business, NCC’s Best, she’s had plenty of opportunities to explore the world. Along the way, her fluency in Spanish has come in handy.

“The majority of our products are from Africa and Central America. During our annual trip to Guatemala, I was part of a group giving presentations in Spanish to producers of coffee and textiles,” she says.

Gail is enrolled in a five-year program that will allow her to graduate from North Central with both a bachelor’s and a master’s degrees.
