Adult Learning, 2010 cohort

Research interests:

I have been fortunate to have traveled to over 15 foreign countries– as a tourist, as a volunteer, and as a student and/or instructor.  My experiences in other cultures have been informative for my life.  I’m interested in how the stories people tell relate to the areas of adult learning and development, reflection, reflective writing, and the development of intercultural sensitivity.  My dissertation question is: How do adults make meaning of living and teaching in a foreign country?

Professional Accomplishments:

  • US Department of State, Teaching Fellowship, 2004
  • UCLA Extension, Distinguished Instructor Award, 2009
  • UCLA, Staff Achievement Award, 2011

What are your personal and professional hopes/goals for your PhD journey and beyond?

Each day, my goal is to enjoy life as much as possible and to learn as much as possible.
