For international student exchange professionals

The world can be your home

I can help you find effective ways to build intercultural learning into your international program, create materials tailored to your programs and students, provide coaching for program staff and administrators, and assess how well your programs are meeting your goals.

I bring 30 years of personal and professional experience to the field of international exchange where I have worked in the areas of program research and evaluation, educational program development, worldwide communications and information systems. I have also learned from the stories and concerns of hundreds of people – students, families, volunteers, staff – who have been part of an exchange experience. Many of these stories are highlighted in The Exchange Student Survival Kit, which I first wrote in 1993 and revised in 2007.

I know what it takes to make sure that your program provides an enriching intercultural learning experience, and I’m ready to work with you to make that happen.
