I adopted training and professional development as my career 25 years ago, when I attended a two-week 'Training of Trainers' Workshop as a Peace Corps volunteer in Zaire, Central Africa. Since then, I have lived, worked, or traveled in more than 30 countries, experiencing first hand the different cultural characteristics and preferences of learners around the world. I earned my Master's degree in International Development and my Ph.D. in Educational Technology. I am also a Certified Professional in Learning and Performance (CPLP).

As the corporate educator for multinational companies, I've had the opportunity to create, test, and revamp training courses for multicultural audiences. From my research, I created the Cultural Adaptation Process (CAP) Model©, the method I use to align your course - content, methodologies, and technologies - to the needs of your global learners. I published the pioneering book, Globalized eLearning Cultural Challenges [2007] and Cases on Culturally Appropriate eLearning: Challenges and Solutions [December 2010]. I am actively involved in international training and development through professional associations such as, ASTD, ISPI, SIETAR, and LISA. As adjunct faculty, I teach graduate courses in adult education and elearning. In addition, I am President of the Global eLearning Community (www.The-GEC.org).
