Suzanne Nam moved to Thailand in 2005 for a one-year stint as a newspaper reporter — and she hasn’t left since. Like all meaningful things, Suzanne’s career was more a product of evolution than of planning: She grew up in Cambridge, Massachusetts, went to law school after college, and practiced law for five years — enough time to produce a rain forest’s worth of corporate paperwork — and then she gave it all up to work toward a journalism degree at Columbia.
Next the world pulled Suzanne east — first to London, then the Middle East, and finally Bangkok. She is now a reporter for Forbes magazine, a reformed corporate lawyer, and a dedicated travel writer.
Suzanne met her future husband during her first year in Bangkok. In 2009 they adopted a street dog named Sam; in 2011 their twins, Bix and Ella, were born. Raising children in a foreign country brings plenty of adventure and challenges, but daily life in Thailand is surprisingly stable and comfortable. Suzanne couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.
