Regional Manager, East

In My Words:

I’m a native of Galway, Ireland, and have always had an interest in languages. For me, the best part about learning a new language is the freedom that comes from traveling to a country where the particular language is spoken, and having the ability to communicate with native speakers. It completely enhances your experience, and allows you to interact with the culture on a new level.

My educational background includes B.A.’s in both German and Spanish from the University of Ireland, Galway, and an M.B.A from Kansas State University. I have worked and studied in Germany, France, and Spain. My studies in world languages afforded me opportunity to teach at the university level at Kansas State University, and I’ve subsequently tutored high school students from all over the world in French, Spanish, and ESL. Since putting down roots in the U.S., I’m delighted to have the opportunity to use both my expertise in customer experience and foreign language instruction in the dynamic publishing environment that is Vista Higher Learning.
