Mike Nowlin ’93
Mike Nowlin ’93 reports that his family recently
repatriated to central Ohio after working
in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, for nearly four
years. He was the executive director for Hagar
Cambodia, a Christian non-profit ensuring that
survivors of human rights abuses such as human
trafficking, gender-based violence and abuse
receive trauma recovery services. He reports
that living abroad was a wonderful personal and
professional opportunity: They were able to help
those in their time of need; take in new cultures
as they traveled to numerous international
destinations in the region; and develop
friendships with people from around the world.
He continues working with the same global
organization, but now as the executive director of
Hagar USA in a fundraising and advocacy role.
They continue adjusting to the cold weather, the
countless choices while shopping and the lack of
traffic in Columbus.
