Introduction

I am a native of Chicago with extensive experience working in the education & consulting industry. I received a bachelor’s degree in education at Eastern Illinois University. After graduation, I moved to Beijing, China, where I worked as a teacher in the local school system and served as an education consultant at New Oriental (新东方). Currently, I am the International Program Director at a private high school and can say that I have helped over 1,000 students get accepted to some amazing schools!

Hope to learn about your dreams and help them come true!
