Alyssa’s father, Jeff Divers, is a bilingual editor and translator. American born, but raised in Argentina, he is fluent in Spanish and intimately familiar with the cultures of Latin America- skills he has used extensively in legal publishing and in the pursuit of his M.A.
Additionally, he spent several years counseling children in both hospital and wilderness settings.
Jeff has experienced first hand the divisive pressures of caring for his family during Alyssa’s illness while working full time, including the financial and logistical challenges of procuring housing while seeking treatment for Alyssa a long way from home.
His family has also experienced the blessings of having housing prepared and provided for them with minimal effort and cost.
