I was born in Washington DC in 1961, grew up bilingual on Capitol Hill and came to Germany to study in Konstanz in 1981. Further stops along the way were Berlin, Dresden, Singen and Siegen. After ten years in Munich, I am now starting over in Potsdam and Berlin.
I’ve been teaching English for business and academic purposes since 1998. Clients before my move included Ludwig Maximilian Universität and ClimateDesign, the Department of Building Climatology at the Technische Universität, as well as companies like Odgers Berndtson, BMW and Archon Group. I’m teaching at the Potsdam Research Cluster for Georisk Analysis, Environmental Change and Sustainability (PROGRESS). I run compact seminars for Akademie für Sekretariat und Büromanagment and Management Circle. I do audio recordings, e.g. for the Kultusministerium Bayern, and contribute to projects for Cornelsen. I have experience in running a Moodle platform of my own. I’m a translator for clients sich as IHK München (sample), Odgers Berndtson (sample) and Abwasserverband Starnberger See (sample). From 2008 to 2010 I wrote language exercises at Spotlight Online, where I supported the online relaunch.
After my M.A. in History and Political Science, I worked as a museum exhibition coordinator. I am currently completing my DipTESOL from Trinity College London, through Oxford House in Barcelona, and my training has included LCCI CertTEB (Certificate in Teaching English for Business). I’m a member of IATEFL BESIG (and one of the BOT), organize events for ELTABB, and have been a board member at MELTA.
Apart from that, you’ll find me sailing, making music, reading or just plain outdoors.
