English as a Second Language (ESL) teacher + global PR professional

 

ABOUT

After 12 years of Change Management, Public Relations and Global Communications roles at a Fortune 500 aerospace company, I moved 7,228 miles to teach English in China's Silicon Valley. My journey has included history-making drones (Google "X-47B"), stealth aircraft technology, UAE STEM programs and national tours for Japanese media. And it's still evolving! Get in touch if you'd like to learn more - or even just chat.
