I have been The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award coordinator, developing programs from 8 students to over 150 students participating at all 3 levels. I have coached a variety of sports at various levels including Head Track and field Coach (Swiss and European Champions), Junior Varsity Girls Soccer (Swiss Champions), and Middle School Girls Volleyball/Basketball/Touch Rugby (South China Delta Champions). My previous two schools were American International Schools in China and Switzerland. I wanted to teach at BISH, because it is an International School in America.
Sport has always been an integral part of my life. When I was younger I represented Scotland and Great Britain Junior track and field athletics team, in the Heptathlon. In the last few years I have been participating in Shukokai karate and I am now a blue belt. I obviously enjoy travelling. I have visited 62 countries and I have also visited 31 US states. Through my sports interests and travels, I have become a keen photographer, and have actually sold several photographs. I am now looking forward to being a part of a new family at BISH and to experience the amazing sporting culture and spirit of the USA.
