About the Exchange Mom and Dad
Laura Kosloff and Mark Trexler brought their first foreign exchange student (from Spain) into their home in Portland, Oregon in 2003. Since then, they have hosted over a dozen students from countries around the world. As regional coordinators for one of the largest J-1 exchange organizations operating in the U.S., they mentor and oversee dozens of students and their host families every year.
You've been amazing to work with this year! You answered all our questions, and anticipated our questions even before we thought of them!
I've just found your very helpful blog ...
Hello from Australia! After sending all three of our children on exchange, we are now applying to host in 2019. I've just found your very helpful blog, so will be learning a lot from you I'm sure 😉
I really appreciate the way that you share information
