Iowan on fourth tour with U.S. Foreign Service in Ghana

by Ken Root

My trip to Ghana was made much easier when I was able to link up with Sara Veldheisen Staley, a member of the U.S. Foreign Service, working as a Public Information officer at the US Embassy in Accra, Ghana.

She studied at Northwestern College in Orange City with majors in theatre and communications and sort of stumbled upon the career she wanted.

Sara is on her 4th tour of duty. Her husband, Dave, is also from Iowa and does contract bids for a construction company by internet.

I spoke with her about working in the U.S. Foreign Service and the career path she has followed.
