I'm an Admissions Advisor at International TELF Academy, which means that I provide guidance to people from all backgrounds who want to teach English abroad.
My journey began when I graduated from Texas State University in 2007 with a BA in Education. I took this experience south to Buenos Aires, Argentina where I taught English grammar and literature to 5th-grade students at a private bilingual academy. In 2009, I then moved to Taipei, Taiwan to teach ESL to high school students and I also spent the past five years assisting educators with lining up teaching jobs abroad. I have always been an avid traveler, hopping the pond to England when the opportunity arises or finding myself wandering the cobblestone streets of Tel Aviv. I’m happy to share my story in hopes of helping other International TEFL Academy students connect to the world.
Pennsylvania-born, New York-raised, Texas-educated. I graduated with a degree in Education from Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas.

I come from a long line of travelers. I grew up hearing stories about my parents traveling through Europe and the Middle East. It’s been a huge part of my upbringing and continues to strongly influence my life. I love boarding last-minute plane rides and experiencing random adventures abroad. I’ve always said the sign of a good trip is when you get back home and wonder how you made it back alive!
