I've hosted visitors from many countries and other states, worked with people from 81 countries, and traveled a lot myself. I was the Foreign Scholar Advisor at the University of California at Berkeley, and worked at a startup high tech magazine. For over 20 years I have been an executive coach and management consultant to awesome leaders and professionals. I enjoy meeting people, walking, bicycling, traveling, cooking, knitting and crafts. I am keen on environmental stewardship, grow tomatoes, kale, and citrus fruit.
I have a small poodles named Mocha who enjoys people.
