Our People

Sales & Marketing






Experience:
I've been a professional gypsy for more than 25 years. My goal has been to surround myself with interesting people from whom I can learn. I've been lucky enough to work with the best at PBS, NPR, a Pacific Rim think tank, and a national advertising agency. I've spent the last six years as a software trainer. I discovered I like teaching as much as I like learning. Now I've begun my next adventure here at Communico. Once again, when the student is ready, the teacher shall appear!

Personal Trajectory:
I've become good at demystifying the foreign. Whether teaching English as a second language or introducing a “newbie” to computers, if I get it I can help others get it too.

Virtues:
I've learned to enjoy everything and need nothing.

Vices:
I enjoy everything!

Favorite Project:
Sharing what I know and love, especially as a volunteer. I've given talks on collecting vintage jewelry, prepared new immigrants for their citizenship exams, and tried to build habitable houses. (I've found that I'm much better with a brush than with a hammer.)

Special Interest:
I love to check out new places and people. I come to Connecticut via Albany, Washington, D.C., Honolulu, Santa Barbara, and San Francisco. This has allowed me to play tennis and golf on some of the prettiest courts/courses you'd ever want to see. Sadly neither of my games has improved, and I'm blaming it on the distracting scenery.
