Culture is a marvelous thing – but it can also be frustrating when we don’t understand how to read the hidden codes and perform the required scripts. It can also be hard to know what to do when expectations clash with our own ethics and norms. Even people who consider themselves flexible, open-minded, and sensitive can struggle with feelings of confusion, discomfort, and uncertainty!
My mission is to help people connect across cultures and manage themselves during cultural change and transition. Different situations call for different approaches: I engage people in a variety of ways, including as a writer, coach, consultant, mentor, researcher, and photographer.
Whether you’re moving abroad or moving home, working on a global team, or trying to understand your diverse classroom, you can never have too much intercultural competence. Let me know how I can help!
