I have worked in the ESL field for over twenty years with 8 of these years spent teaching in Japan and Mexico. During the three years I spent in Japan, I worked as a Global Business English and Cross-Cultural Consultant to executives at Mazda & Ford Motor Companies. The five years spent in Mexico were as a Cross-Cultural Institute Director and Cross-Cultural Communication Consultant working with local companies in San Luis Potosi and Queretaro, Mexico.
After returning to the U.S., I joined the International Professional Development program at the University of Ne at Omaha. In the eleven years that I have been with the program, I have taught Global Business English, Strategic Reading, Effective Business Writing, Cross-Cultural Strategies for Communication and Effective Presentations & Public Speaking.
My strength is identifying and helping students reach their objectives whether it be to feel comfortable talking to new people or giving a successful business presentation to a multi-cultural audience. In addition, I have the added advantage of having lived as a non-native speaker in two countries for over eight years so I am highly empathetic and understanding to the challenges that students face living in the United States.
