I received the following to post.
The outgoing U.S. Ambassador to Panama, Barbara Stephenson, will be visiting Boquete on Thursday, May 20 to speak to ExPats here about what the embassy is doing these days. Please come early and be seated for her 8:00 am presentation.
Ambassador Stephenson began her diplomatic career here in Panama, first as an economic officer and later as a political officer. She was appointed Ambassador to Panama in 2008, after serving posts in Iraq, Ireland, the Netherland Antilles, Aruba, the Balkans, South Africa, the UK, San Salvador and The Hague.
Ambassador Stephenson has now been appointed to the highest office the State Department has…..Minister to the UK, and will take up her office there shortly with her family.
