Jill Nanne, President

An expat life is an adventure and I have enjoyed mine since moving to SE Asia in 2010!  My husband and I have called KL home since the fall of 2016. The AAM is a great way to have fun and give back, to make new friends, and to enjoy that "home away from home" feeling. I look forward to sharing my next Malaysian adventure with you as President of AAM.  I hope to meet you at our next event!

Donna Lamb, vice President

Since moving to Kuala Lumpur in December, 2016, I have traveled to seven nearby countries and enjoyed writing about the diverse arts community in Malaysia at donnatravels.com.  It is a joy to meet other Americans along their Malaysian journey. Together, we can enhance AAM’s mission of having fun and giving back to our community.

Judy Pescio, treasurer

Becoming a member of the AAM was one of the first things I did when we moved to KL.  It was a great way to meet new friends, discover KL and adapt to our new home.  I look forward to giving back to the AAM as its Treasurer.

 

Meredith Tomkovitch, Secretary

I have been living in KL for the past 10 months, moving from Abu Dhabi and Tokyo previously.  Originally from upstate New York, I joined AAM to meet new people and learn everything I can about my new home.  

 

Jill NaNne, Events director

I first came to KL in 1999. Wow has it changed!   In 2010, I moved from DSM, IA to Singapore where I was actively involved with the AWA there.  When I moved to KL in Sept. of 2016, I knew I wanted to get involved with the AAM, where I could make friends and learn more about my new home.  I'm excited to represent the AAM as their Events Director. I hope to meet you at upcoming events!   

 

Shelby Raaj, Membership Director

I have lived in Malaysia since June 2017. I joined the AAM a few months after moving here. I loved seeing all the diversity among the members. Being a part of the association has helped me meet people I might not have met on my own. I am very excited to give back to the association by being the Membership Director!
