I am an American who has been living in Germany for the last three years. During this time, I have focused on improving my German language abilities and completing my Master of Economics at the Ruhr Universit├Ąt in Bochum. Additionally, I have a Master of Business Administration and Bachelors degree in Economics.
Prior to my arrival in Germany, I worked for 13 years for the Department of Veterans Affairs in offices all across the United States. A key part of my job involved interacting with people from a variety of backgrounds and organizational levels. I have experience provided briefings to individuals from Congress, the Pentagon and the White House. These experiences have helped me gain valuable knowledge about the current business world and the language and social skills which are needed to successfully navigate it.
