Inge-Lise Titheradge is an educator, trainer, artist and adventurer who has lived internationally for more than twenty years. Her career and journeys have taken her from West and Southern Africa, to Asia, the Americas, and most recently to the Beqaa Valley in Lebanon. She currently resides amidst the wonders of Los Angeles. Hailing from a bi-cultural family, the world was always presented as a place to explore. Through her own discovery she also found it to be a place of lament, deep injustice, and full of possibility.
Through the lens of lament, injustice and possibility her life choices were directed. Inge-Lise holds a Master of Science in Social Work from Azusa Pacific University, a Master of Arts in Intercultural Studies from Fuller Graduate School and a Bachelors of Education from Leeds University in the United Kingdom. Completing her Social Work degree brought together her education and international experience, where her passion to stand with the plight of children focused her thesis on children caught in high conflict zones, and the role of protective factors that can bring forth personal resilience.
In her role, Inge-Lise’s focus will be on developing curriculum content surrounding resiliency, through programs specifically for girls in war zones.
To create balance in her life, Inge-Lise thrives in practicing contemplative exercises, labyrinth walking, creating art and spending time with her family, not to mention enjoying a good gin and tonic, or a cup of tea.
