About Libby Stephens
Libby has worked with the internationally mobile community since 1985. After working with Third Culture Kids (TCKs) at an international boarding school in Germany for 17 years, Libby returned to the United States in 2002 and became Director of TCK Services with Interaction International, Inc. working alongside her long-time mentor, the late Dr. David C. Pollock.
Today Libby is a Third Culture Kid consultant, conducting Transition Training, Pre-departure Training, and Third Culture Kid Seminars all around the world. Her unending passion for Third Culture Kids, families and international schools have taken her to 5 continents and numerous international schools, businesses and governmental organizations to help them understand the ongoing issues of the Third Culture and international transitions. With an undergraduate degree in Behavioral Science and Masters work in Counseling, Libby specializes in the grief issues facing TCKs, the culture-related stress of transition, understanding how culture works, and humanizing the international transition experience.
When she is not flying somewhere (flying around 150,000 miles a year!) Libby makes her home in DeLand, Florida where she can be found packing for the next flight.
Her current projects include:
- Development of a Master's Course on Understanding the Third Culture Kid - recently completed
- Strategic implementation of co-sponsored Think Tank on the 21st Century TCK
- Libby's new book project
