Her 27-year career, for which she earned the CIA’s Intelligence Commendation Medal, included operational disguise responsibilities in the most hostile theaters of the Cold War, from Havana to Beijing to Moscow and ultimately into the Oval Office.

She is currently an author, lecturer, teacher and consultant on intelligence matters. She has co-written several books with her husband Antonio Mendez, including Spy Dust: A True Story of Espionage and Romance, Argo and, most recently, The Moscow Rules.

Members are invited to stop by any time between 9 and 11 AM on Saturday, February 12th, to enjoy coffee and pastries and chat with Jonna and other members of the Spy Museum team.
