Who Am I?

I grew up in a small town in Wisconsin, never suspecting I would later travel and live around the world. Learning in all its forms has become my passion, and since 2005 I have worked in international education as a teacher, leader and learner.

I love what I do. As a creative, passionate educator and communicator, I strive to work with others in building positive learning communities within schools and other organizations. With a diverse background in technology, communications, education, research, strategic planning, marketing and leadership, as well as 15 years of professional experience in high-level positions, I draw upon a very broad mix of skills in helping organizations identify ways to continue growing and improving.

I am available for consulting & other professional opportunities.
