Your international resident insider …
International life experience
Outside of Switzerland, I have studied, volunteered, or worked in the United States, Germany, Russia, Argentina, Uruguay, and Costa Rica. Within Switzerland, I've lived or worked in Fribourg, Interlaken, Aarau, Luzern, and Zug. Presently, I make my home on the left shore of Lake Zurich in Horgen, ZH.
While fully integrated into Swiss life through my network of contacts and family, I also keep one foot firmly planted in the colorful international community of the Zurich region. I draw my inspiration and energy from this multicultural group, which feeds my need for diversity, and is often a special link to my native language and culture.
Corporate gone freelance
After over thirteen years of work in public relations, copywriting, internal communication and project management, I handed in my in-house hat and moved into the freelance realm. Areas of expertise include: language education, higher education, marketing, cultural exchange, intercultural competency, travel, health care, pharmacy, special needs, cooking, and wellness.
I hold a B.A. in Journalism & Mass Communication and a B.A. in German Language & Linguistics from Iowa State University; as well as a M.A. in International Education Management, from the SIT Graduate Institute, Vermont.
