Teaching Experience: TEFL certification. Thirty-plus years as a volunteer teacher, including six-months in Costa Rica. I have learned basic greetings in Chinese, Spanish, and Swahili and am currently involved as a volunteer with a special outreach to foreign speakers in Richmond, Virginia.
Interests: I love music! I greatly enjoy reading and writing and the great outdoors. My husband and children and I love to hike and camp. I am also very funny and enjoy a good belly-laugh! I have a knack for making even very shy people feel comfortable.
Education: I earned my High School Diploma and went right into the business world from there. I have owned many businesses and operated them successfully. This included automobile customizing, wind and solar installation services, commercial cleaning, and property management. I gained my TEFL certification in 2013. I have also been certified as a CNA and enjoy many entrepeneurial pursuits as a self-employed person.
