Personal Path

Born in the Midwest, America's heartland, I grew up with a curiosity for foreign countries and languages.  I obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in French and German from Webster University, in St. Louis, Missouri.

After finding employment in the Banking and medical sector, I left the security of my home culture to work in Asia (Osaka, Japan and Chengdu, China) for over 4 years.  

Working as a cross cultural facilitator in the Asian hotel industry gave me valuable first-hand experience of the challenges involved in building relationships in a language and culture whose values were often at odds with my own.

Upon my arrival in Paris in 1991, I discovered the writings of Hofstede and Trompenhaars, the pioneers of multiculturalism and joined Sietar.  

As a trilingual American, I use both my life experience abroad along with my languages to build awareness of the cultural challenges faced by Europeans when working with Asians and Americans.

I did my systemic coaching training in Paris, Munich and Shanghai and am specialized in management and team-building trainings.    I provide support and leadership coaching to expatriate CEOs and CFOs throughout Europe.
