Experienced Corporate Training and Coaching Professional
Born and raised in Chicago, I have also lived and worked for lengthy periods on three other continents, primarily in Germany (where I now live, in Berlin), Sri Lanka and Singapore (where I lived the past 18 years). I received a Bachelor’s degree (B.A.) in Movement, Psychology and Education and a Masters Degree (M.Ed.) in Adult and Continuing Education from the University of Illinois. In addition I am a certified Personal Efficiency Program (PEP) Consultant, a Belbin Team Roles Facilitator and the author of numerous articles as well as a chapter in the book 88 Essential Secrets for Achieving Greater Success at Work (2012).
My talks and workshops are known for being highly participatory and motivating. In addition to my current work in Germany, I have led trainings in China, Singapore, India, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines and Australia. In the U.S. I received numerous creative programming awards for communication skills workshops for a wide range of groups spanning from business professionals and social service agencies to work on Indian reservations and at a federal prison.
For 15 years my work was as an actor, director, teacher and trainer with the United Mime Workers Theatre Company, an internationally acclaimed professional mime theatre group which toured throughout the United States as well as in Europe and Latin America at theatres, universities and public venues. I continued teaching acting skills at colleges and theatre schools in Germany and Singapore, and then switched my focus to full-time corporate training and coaching.
Between 1998-2018 I worked in Southeast Asia, offering programs extensively with the Singapore Civil Service College’s (CSC) Institute for Public Administration and Management (IPAM), where I was honoured with the Trainer Excellence Award in 2012.
