Liz Kim - International Programs Coordinator

Upon returning to Sydney, she was able to continue working with the Jesuits in the international development sector by joining Jesuit Mission in 2018. In her role as International Programs Coordinator, Liz is responsible for countries such as India, Myanmar, Thailand, China and Vietnam.
