Helping families and students pursue educational goals is my oxygen. As the granddaughter of an immigrant coal miner from Poland, did I ever think I would have a bachelor’s degree, much less a master’s? Never. Did I ever think I would live overseas for twenty-five years? Never. Living and working in Saudi Arabia and later in the United Arab Emirates defined my life and allowed me to experience how education changes people, communities and countries. To this end, I’m an advocate of #YouAreWelcomeHere

Fun time is AA and AAA baseball with my son (an FMS grad), watching NFL through the fall, city hikes and exploring anywhere I’ve never been. Petra in Jordan was a jaw-dropper for me and I continuously marvel at the beauty and dynamics of Washington DC. Laughter is the universal language and I speak this as much as possible.

Fishburne offers both international students and American students the opportunity to achieve with our robust academics and critical analysis expected by universities. International students gain academic English skills and earn an American high school diploma in a spectacular safe location. Fishburne’s military structure teaches and encourages responsibility,  integrity, honor and respect for everyone.

My educational history includes a Master of Arts in International Relations from Webster University and a Bachelor of Arts in International Studies from State University of New York.

From my heart:  #YouAreWelcomeHere
