Nancy L. Hoffman Inducted into Worldwide Who's Who for Excellence in International Development

Nancy Hoffman delivers foreign aid where it is needed most

    GUATEMALA, December 27, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Nancy L. Hoffman, Deputy Mission Director of the U.S. Agency for International Development, has been recognized by Worldwide Who's Who for showing dedication, leadership and excellence in delivering foreign assistance.

From an executive officer doing administrative work to a vice president serving in the field, Ms. Hoffman's journey with the U.S. Agency for International Devleopment (USAID) has been a long one. First recruited by the organization after going back to school to earn a bachelor's degree at the age of 28, she now serves on an agency mission in Guatemala, attending biweekly meetings with office directors, participating in outside events with community leaders, giving speeches, working with members of the private sector, and meeting with donors and other groups to coordinate aid efforts. Her work primarily entails developing strategies for resolving problems related to governance, health standards and economic development. Even after all these years of services, Ms. Hoffman still remains steadfastly dedicated to uphold the agency's mission to deliver economic development and humanitarian assistance around the world in support of the foreign policy goals of the U.S.

Perhaps most integral to her commitment is her selfless perspective. Ms. Hoffman defines success not in terms of money and material wealth, but in seeing and knowing that her efforts have made a difference in people's lives. It's not something that can be touched, but it can be felt whenever someone she works with shows signs of gratitude. First attacted to USAID because she wanted to travel the world and experience new cultures, she later went on to earn a Master of Science in national resource strategy from the Industrial College of the Armed Forces, now known as The Eisenhower School. A lifetime member of Epsilon Sigma Alpha, she also co-founded La Casa de mi Padre, a children's counseling and education center in El Salvador. Looking ahead, Ms. Hoffman plans to retire from her current position and continue working as either a consultant or a mediator in the Florida court system.
