Born in Yorkshire in the North of England, I lived there with my family throughout my childhood until moving to Manchester for University. As part of my degree, I spent a year studying at the College of William and Mary in Virginia. This was such a wonderful experience and I have been keen to return to the US ever since. After graduation, I worked for an American company in London for five years. During that time, I was fortunate to travel lots with my job and worked with people from all over the world. Once I decided to change careers, I trained to be a teacher back in Yorkshire before moving once again to London and teaching in an East London school. For the last four years, I have taught at a British International School in Hong Kong. I have loved living in Asia, as it’s so diverse and has provided such fantastic travel experiences – my passport is now full of stamps! Moving to Chicago is so exciting, and I am ready to explore a new city as well as spend time visiting new places in North America. In particular, I am looking forward to watching more live sport and music as well as experiencing seasons again – I have not had a winter in four years so will definitely need to also do some shopping to buy some warmer clothes!
