After achieving a bachelor’s in business and working in the senior healthcare field as a marketing director and hospice coordinator, I felt that life was calling me in a new direction. Thus, I took on the adventure of coming to Beijing to teach English. I fell in love with the teaching profession along with Chinese culture. In addition to my teaching experience, I have developed myself as a professional teacher completing a master’s in ESL and ESL K-12 teacher licensure, both issued by Hamline University from the state of Minnesota, USA. Going further, I have completed CELTA, TEFL, and TKT certifications.
I made the decision to come to BSB Sanlitun because I am eager to be a part of a like-minded community that pursues high academic rigor along and support for student well-being.
I value the people close to me in my life. No matter where I am in the world, it’s my family and friendships that anchor me, including my little Yorkshire, Doudou. In my free time my main routine includes being with friends practising Chinese, baking sweets in my kitchen, and going for walks. On the holidays, \I love decorating my home with little decorations I brought from my home country. Decorating for the holidays is a tradition from my aunt Marcia that I love carrying on here in China. The people that surround me, a simple routine, and family traditions show a part of who I am.
