    Digital Resume

    I am an educator and advisor that works in a global context.


    I've supported study abroad participants, international students, exchange participants, English language learners, and career seekers in my work.


    I've designed online course environments, created curricula for various disciplines, facilitated hands-on and interactive learning activities, facilitated workshops for peers and professionals in my field, and taught English to non-native speakers.


    My professional background has been varied, but each position has been built around advising students, educating people using experiential learning, creating inclusive educational environments, and designing cross-cultural programs.


    If you think I may be a good fit for your organization, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
