About the Author:

Anna Graf Williams, Ph.D., is a second-generation, born-in-America German who went from being a farmer's daughter to earning a Ph.D. in education. As the co-founder and co-owner of Learnovation®, LLC, she has designed and taught courses in diversity, mentored immigrant students in the hotel and restaurant business, and worked with people to expand their careers.

Daljinder Kooner brought the initial inspiration and insight into the writing team as a naturalized citizen—20 years in the United States—from India. He has helped mentor and introduce many of his family and friends to the United States, and is a successful entrepreneur and restaurateur.

Mary Jo Dolasinski is Croatian, second-generation, born in America. She is a corporate trainer in the lodging and restaurant industry—one of the biggest employers of immigrant workers in the United States. Mary Jo has many years of management experience with a mufti-ethnic work force. She also taught ethnic dance for 16 years and is a university instructor.

Karen J. Hall is one of those Americans with a mixed heritage. She has traces of English, Dutch, Scottish, and German ancestry and probably more thrown in for good measure—some who immigrated as early as the late 1600s and some in the 1870s. She has been a corporate trainer in the field of software doing instructional design and editing, a university instructor, and currently works with career development as a co-founder and co-owner of Learnovation®, LLC.
