I have a passion for all things international and have deep interest in cultural exchange and education. My background includes a variety of experiences that have uniquely prepared me for working with students from around the globe. Some of these include:
• Spending 2 years studying at a university in Tokyo, Japan as well as working there as an English language teacher.
• Working as a tour guide and English language instructor in Rome, Italy.
I grew up in Springfield, MA and earned a B.A in Japanese Language and Literature from the University of Massachusetts/Amherst. After graduation, because of my continued desire to learn more about foreign education, I traveled independently throughout Europe and Asia. I settled in the metro Boston area thereafter, pursuing a diverse career in the areas of business, education consulting and teaching.
