I am a native English-speaker and a quasi-native Spanish-speaker. I have a passion for languages and have dabbled in many languages, but I am currently working on Hebrew.
I am an educator and director with over 17 years of experience. I help schools and organizations to offer focused learning experiences so that they meet their learning and development goals even if they have struggled in the past due to inefficient practices. I offer creative, future-focused solutions. For the next step in my career, I would like an opportunity to marry my enthusiasm for relationship-building and my passion for innovation. me.
If you have ideas about that next step, would like to network, or suggest side projects, please contact me.
