Lana Lundin moved back to her home state of California in 2001, having lived in Sweden over twenty years. Raised in a military family, moving was not new to her.
From 2004-2022, Lana volunteered and taught Swedish classes at the Scandinavian Center in Thousand Oaks. She was on the board of the Scandinavian American Cultural and Historical Foundation, having served as vice-president for 2 years. From 2007-2022 Lana served in various positions, including director, for the Scandinavian Festival which takes place on the campus of California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks.
Lana has a Bachelor of Science, Administrative Science from Pepperdine University as well as a Montessori teaching credential from St. Nicholas Montessori Training Center, London, England.
Lana and her husband live in Camarillo, spending their summers with their daughter in Sweden. Her son and Swedish daughter-in-law live in Ventura. Lana has had a strong interest in the fieldworkers in Ventura County since moving here. In 2022 she “left Scandinavia behind” and has devoted more time to Friends of Fieldworkers. Though Lana is bilingual, her second language is Swedish. Becoming fluent in Spanish is now a goal. She is a firm believer that the actions of each of us CAN make a difference.
