I am a graduate of the University of Minnesota (M.A., Mass Communication) and the University of Wisconsin (B.A., Spanish with a minor in Journalism), and studied Spanish at the Universidad de Madrid (Spain) during my Junior Year. Following my graduation from UW-Madison, I returned to Europe, working for a summer at a resort in Palma de Mallorca, and then for the US Army in Heidelberg Germany. I have worked as a marketing & PR consultant to scores of businesses, nonprofits and entrepreneurs, training hundreds of professionals on related topics including promotional writing, strategic marketing planning and more. In addition, I have published more than 200 articles on marketing / PR and business planning and management, and have taught related topics for numerous colleges and universities. My passion is to help older students who want to learn how to use language to better express themselves in any medium – term papers, feature articles, technical papers, essays, fiction and nonfiction, etc., and / or to help them prepare for a career requiring management and business development skills. My personal interests include biking, live music events, and following national / international news.
