  • I would say "Aunt Gloria has not visited us since she began working abroad." or "Aunt Gloria has not visited us since she started working abroad." Jan 18 at 15:22
  • It would be helpful if you could tell us what specifically you are confused about or what you already know. Jan 18 at 15:23
  • I'd like to paraphrasie this 1 sentence with last do you know how Jan 18 at 15:33
  • Note, there's potential in both cases to take "since" to mean "because." Jan 18 at 15:39

The first sentence implies that she is still working abroad whereas the second implies that she is no longer working abroad.
