Blair and her daughter, Harper, traveled with Kenya Connect in June 2017. On the trip, she and her daughter taught yoga to the students and some of the teachers and staff. Seeing the students engage in something completely unfamiliar to them was immensely satisfying. This year, Blair organized a “take your child to work day” engagement with Kenya Connect which allowed children in the US and Kenya to engage through letter writing and an art project. Blair is involved with St. John’s Church where she has served as a vestry member, Sunday school teacher, Pastoral Care Commission leader, and verger. She also teaches yoga as a way to engage the community and to raise funds for various organizations.
