About Me

I am currently finishing my Masters in Learning and Development in Brisbane. Before that I spent 5 years living and teaching in South Korea. In September I am off to teach in Singapore at an international school. I love kids and teaching, and I love traveling and meeting new people.


Life is short, so love, laugh a lot and enjoy every moment. And don't think, tomorrow it will be there still. Appreciate every opportunity, graciously.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Spend time traveling whenever I can (that's many amazing things I suppose, not just one). But the choice to travel... that's one amazing thing I've done.

Teach, Learn, Share

Every experience is a learning one. And we never know when we will be sharing something new with someone, or they with us. That is the excitement!
