You Should Know About Me

Key Accomplishments

B.A. in Humanities and Social Communication, Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez in Chile and M.A. in Cross-cultural Communications, The University of Sydney, Australia. My life has been a continuous Intercultural training session. I am both US American and Chilean, raised in California and Colorado, Mother from NY and father from Los Andes. My family relocated to Chile when I was 10, and after moving back and forth, I finally made my own home in Chile.
I have witnessed culture shock between these countries within my family as well as in the business. Both my life and work experience have been related to interpersonal relations with people from diverse cultures which led me to undergo a Masters in Cross-cultural Communication in the University of Sydney, Australia. .
Currently, I own an English Academy and I am engaged independently in multiple activities, conducting workshops, as a Intercultural Consultant for various local companies, mainly in the mining industry, as a mediator in matters of intercultural relations and international communications and also speaking in seminars on the topic.

How I like to work with people
As an Advisor

My style of consutancy is based on studies in the area, but mostly on experience. A mix of empathy and practical training, using a range of models depending on the person or group's needs.
