Miriam Hurdle grew up in Hong Kong where she finished college and worked for several years before coming to the United States. While in Hong Kong, she taught Chinese as a Second Language in Hong Kong Baptist University and the Chinese University of Hong Kong. She was also the Director of Children’s Department for Asian Outreach where she published four Children’s books.
Miriam came to the United States for her graduate studies and received three master’s degrees in Education, Counseling, and School Administration, and earned the Doctor of Education from La Verne University in California. She was a counselor for two years, then went into education. After teaching in California public school for fifteen years, she was promoted to a school district administrative position which kept her busy for ten years before retirement. The retirement made life easier since she survived a stage IV melanoma cancer.
