My credentials as the new Ambassador appointed were

(first round) 9 sep 2020 (second round) I am a career member of the senior
Foreign Service with the rank of Minister-Counselor whose diplomatic

in Copenhagen, Denmark. Prior to this, I was the U.S. Ambassador to Mali,
and I have served as Deputy Chief of Mission at the U.S. Embassies in
Tunisia, Senegal and Togo. Other overseas postings include Niger, South
Africa, India and Chad. In Washington, I was the senior desk officer for

and literature in University of Oregon in Eugene, and I also attend the
University de Haute Bretagne in Rennet, France, from 1979-1980 as a Rotary

Meanwhile, a "Custom Clearance Certificate" must be obtained from the Benin
Customs Authority at a fee of $105 USD for a full clearance certificationon
