Carol Hutchinson Phone: 503-554-6182

I was born, raised and traveled extensively in the Pacific Northwest (Walla Walla, Wash.; Milton-Freewater, Baker City, Ontario and Portland, Ore.; Seattle). My teaching career began in 1979 when I went to Argentina, South America. I spent 20 years there, learned Spanish, and traveled to many Latin American countries. I then returned to the United States in 1999. I have traveled extensively in the U.S. and received my Doctor of Ministry degree from George Fox Evangelical Seminary. I spent five years working with support groups in a 12-step program. I’ve also done in-home tutoring with the No Child Left Behind initiative. Prior to joining George Fox full time, I served as an adjunct professor.
