Hello! I'm an experienced intercultural educator and consultant who partners with institutions and individuals to teach, engage, and transform.
I've lived and taught in a wide variety of international settings, with a diverse array of students, situations, formats, levels, and classrooms.
As a multiracial TCK (third culture kid) with lifelong, in-depth cross-cultural experience in multiple arenas, I approach teaching and learning as an interactive and dynamic process.
I'm based in Los Angeles, and I love living in a city where it often feels like every corner of the world is represented!
