Celine Ford

Celine was elected president of AAFSW in September 2022. She created the Spouses in Transition Committee in 2018, and continues to lead the committee.

A seasoned foreign affairs community member, Celine began her career with a Fortune 500 US hydrocarbons company in Algiers, where she joined her former husband at his first overseas post. Subsequently, she served as executive director for a national park system in the Republic of Seychelles. In Colombia, she transitioned to a series of consultancies with the U.S. Foreign Commercial Service (FCS). 

Celine’s long interest in corporate social responsibility and sustainability issues led her to Paris, where she completed the coursework for a master’s degree in Sustainability Management. Celine currently delivers reports, and other research materials for international development practitioners and The Global Disaster Preparedness Center (GDPC), a joint initiative between the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and The American Red Cross.
