International Schools Consortium

International Schools Consortium (iSC) is a nonprofit organization that, since 1986, has offered excellent academic programs to meet the intellectual, physical, and emotional needs of students. iSC has six schools in China — in Chengdu, Qingdao, Wuhan, Wuxi, Tianjin, and Yantai — one school in the UAE, and helps to support various other educational initiatives globally. iSC is a multi-school program, enabling students and teachers to participate in system-wide programs where they can interact with others outside of their immediate school. Students compete in basketball, volleyball and soccer tournaments, as well as music and choral festivals, and Model United Nations (MUN) conventions.

I grew up in Huntington, WV but lived in Virginia and North Carolina before settling in Louisville, KY with my family. I attended Marshall University and Liberty University. Before moving to Yantai, I worked in financial aid, IP insurance and most recently as the Director of an English center. I love all things sports, particularly basketball, football and anything involving the Louisville Cardinals. My passions are traveling, teaching, and developing an environment where all students feel challenged, loved and valued.
