About

I'm grateful to have traveled to six continents (Antarctica - maybe someday?! 😉). In my travels, I've enjoyed seeing wonderful people and places in Argentina, Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Czech Republic, Dominican Republic, England, Eswatini, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Mozambique, the Netherlands, Peru, Russia, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan and the United States.


For the past 20 years, I've been offering volunteer services to Mandarin Chinese speakers in my community. It is my goal to continually improve my communication skills in both Mandarin Chinese and Spanish.


Prior to my "retirement", I spent many years working for a financial services company in a variety of roles, including communications and internal website maintenance. The flexible schedule enabled me to focus on other important pursuits.


During the COVID-19 pandemic, I began teaching English online as a private tutor. The program offered through the Lexica Training Institute has helped me to improve my teaching skills and teach with more confidence. To continue refining my teaching skills, I'm currently enrolled in the 150-hour TESOL Certificate Program.
