I like to view myself as an international nomad. I grew up on three continents, have been exposed to people/places that remain culturally rich and varied, and enjoy traveling/meeting new people. I am an avid reader and love reading across genres; however, I am partial to nonfiction especially autobiographies. I suppose most readers/writers have a bit of the voyeur in them…My interests in learning, teaching and traveling continue to inform my work as a training specialist. I love exchanging ideas and hearing fresh perspectives on myriad topics that shape our professional and personal lives; family, business, health, relationships, work, life and more. My family, friends, faith and colleagues have been instrumental to my growth; therefore, I remember with gratitude, how important it is to encourage others.
