I grew up speaking Dutch, started learning French at age 10 and English at age 14. I also learned German and Spanish and have notions of Italian. I got my secondary diploma in Languages and Social Studies and have a Bachelor of Science (Business Administration). For the past five years, I have been teaching English Language Learners. I am scheduled to receive my ESL Masters at the end of 2019.
I lived in Europe, USA, and Central America. During my time living in Belgium, I worked as a translator for a major Belgian Steel Company. In Panama, I coached the Panamanian National Gymnastics Team. I published two children's exercise books and an inspirational book for gymnasts and gymnastics enthusiasts. "Monkey See Monkey do. An animal Exercise Book for You" is translated into eight languages.
