“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.”
~Margaret Mead

We must confess that we are the possible 
We are the miraculous, the true wonder of this world 
That is when, and only when 
We come to it.”
~Maya Angelou

I am passionate about: collaboration, innovation, writing, and living in balance with the Earth.

I am passionate about all things “language”. 

I enjoy meeting and interacting with my students and teaching them real-world translation and localization skills. I have always appreciated the fact that professors at MIIS remain working professionals.

Expertise

I came to MIIS from a career in banking. I have been in the localization business for 19 years, now. Most of that time, I have worked at MediaLocate, here in the Monterey area. I have worked as a freelancer, a project manager and a vendor manager, and I am now their terminology manager. So I understand the importance of terminology management from multiple perspectives.

I am passionate about civic engagement, in which students connect course curriculum with purposeful reflection and meaningful work in broader communities. I seek to facilitate students’ discovery of ways to use their knowledge and expertise in order to positively affect populations around them. I believe that civic engagement provides a forum for all voices to be heard, and I am committed to creating rich environments where this polyphony can take shape.
