The Chief Executive Officer
Higher Education Consultant
My expatriate (expat) life began 15 years ago when I merged my passion for global adventures and my international affairs background. My professional career includes twenty (20) years in higher education, of which the past ongoing ten (10) have been international. I also have two (2) years of experience in corporate conference planning.
To date, my expat story includes being a third culture kid (TCK) who has lived in seven countries using my career, starting in the USA. I have primarily worked in global higher education, but have also been a digital entrepreneur while long-term visiting three other countries. My travels have taken me to 50+ nations for tourism, cultural exploration, and life enrichment.
I transitioned into international higher education in 2007 with my first position in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Since then, I have lived and loved my expat life with a two-year return stateside. I enjoy strategically working with my friends and colleagues who aspired to join expatriate life.
Coaching and guiding a close friend to obtain a student affairs position in Australia from the USA is an example of my earlier year in my expat career coaching work.
Coaching and guiding a close friend to obtain a student affairs position in Australia from the USA is an example of my earlier year in my expat career coaching work. I have spent countless hours advising or coaching others over dinner, at conferences, or during a phone call about their anticipated journey. It was the soft beginning of what you now know as Roseapple Global's Expat Career Coaching Services.
These opportunities were genuinely fulfilling. As a result of my life experiences, I want to help others achieve their goal of expat living and help higher educational organizations reach their best services for students.
At Roseapple Global, we believe that student success is not only about the classroom. It is also about the administrative cycle of the student, which means understanding their needs and creating operations that deliver exceptional services.
Prior to what you now know as Higher Education Consulting by Roseapple Global, I had consulting projects in student housing with two US institutions. I also supported a local girls' education project in Ethiopia.
Given my purpose and passion, I serve through our consulting services academic institutions or organizations globally. As Roseapple Global, we are open to serving all but geared towards institutions in their foundational start-up years or seeking a transformation in their student-facing units in emerging economies seeking to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goal 4 (#SDG4). We hope to serve targeted regions such as the Caribbean, Middle East, Central Asia, South Asia, Southeast Asia, and Africa. As we know, these regions have a growing youth population who will need development, employment and avenues for family and national prosperity.
