Before joining the College of Wooster in 2009, I worked as an English as a Second Language and Cultural Diversity trainer for corporate clients for over 20 years. I have lived and worked outside the U.S. for more than seven years, most extensively in the Tohoku region of Japan. I have a B.A. in International Studies from Earlham College and an M.A. in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey.

What I enjoy most about my work is the chance to foster connections between students and opportunities that help them mesh their academic, personal and professional interests with hands-on experience.What I like about Wooster is that it’s an exciting, nurturing environment for students, faculty and staff to develop interests that sustain them and make an impact in their communities.
