With over 25 years professional experience as a career coach and trainer, I have supported people from all over the world and from all walks of life with their career and life transitions. Through my experience living and working abroad, ability to converse in several languages, and intercultural work, I am uniquely suited to helping people from other countries, as well as the USA, create fulfilling lives in America.
One of my specialties is supporting international accompanying spouses and partners at universities and in the corporate world. Recently, I made a short documentary that explores the experiences that people have when they leave their home countries and relocate to a new country to follow their loved ones. Six people share their challenges and how they rebuilt their lives in the USA.
Aside from coaching individuals, I present workshops and webinars on a variety of career and intercultural topics. I have been a featured speaker for organizations ranging from community non-profits and schools to major universities and national conferences. I have worked as a consultant training career coaching staff at new career centers in Morocco. Look around my web site and contact me to find out how I can help you!
“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go out and do that.
Because what the world needs more than anything is people who have come alive.” – Harold Whitman
Intercultural Transitions: Moving to a new country is a big transition that can be exciting but also very challenging, especially for the accompanying spouse or partner of a relocating employee or student. While the relocated individual has the opportunity to build a new community through their close contact with coworkers, bosses or fellow students, the accompanying spouse or partner often receives little or no support. From my own experience living and working abroad, and my work at UC Berkeley with spouses who have relocated from nearly 40 different countries, I understand the challenges and needs you may be facing. more…

Internship and Career Coaching for College Students: As a former college career counselor and internship program director, I enjoy helping motivated students learn about themselves and the world of work. If you are a student, I’d love to help you find an internship or decide on a career path.
