I teach team building and leadership courses to undergraduate, MBA and executive business students at Seattle University.
I lived and worked in Rio de Janeiro for 3 years and am fluent in Portuguese and competent in Spanish. I met my husband in Rio and also became a soccer fan :) In 2016, I served as a volunteer at the Summer Olympics in Rio, certainly a highlight of my life.
I enjoy a good meal with friends, music and wine. We have a very mellow dog we rescued from a shelter.
Hosting has opened my world to interacting with such a variety of people doing so many different things--what a delight! I adhere strongly to values of respect for diversity and inclusiveness. I have hosted people who differ from me in race, religion, ethnicity, nationality, and sexual orientation--and I offer everyone the same level of respect we all deserve.
