CSS Leadership and Management
Saybrook University

I have been with Saybrook University since 2002. From 2002-2005, I served as Distance Education Librarian at Saybrook Graduate School and Research Center and helped developed and teach the first Information Competency course. In 2005, I became an independent academic coach, editor, and proofreader, served as a translator/editor for an esoteric psychology project, and continued to work with Saybrook's Library Director to further develop the Information Competency course and review assignments. From 2009, I have been teaching the Information Competency and Library Use Course for the School of Mind Body Medicine and the School of Organizational Leadership and Transformation and, in Spring 2013, I have added the academic writing instructions to my portfolio. I continue to teach the Information Competency course and the Graduate Academic Writing course for the Department of Leadership and Management (College of Social Sciences), and work increasingly on publishing projects (articles and books).

My academic background in Eastern philosophy and religion is paired with business experience, having worked at Yahoo! for five years and with Google Search for two years. Through various travels and connections, I have made my home in Europe, North America, and Southeast Asia. I have a personal interest in systems thinking and its relationship to Eastern philosophy, conscious awareness, sustainability, integrative medicine, mindfulness meditation, and yoga.
