I am a returned Peace Corps volunteer, with experience working in the Dominican Republic as a health sector volunteer and in Turkey and Korea as an ESL teacher and editor. I have a certificate in TESOL, with a specialization in TOEFL, and an Editing Specialist certificate. I have 15 years of experience in writing, editing, and teaching English. I also have a master's in public health, with experience in women's human rights, fundraising, and event planning, gained through volunteer work, including serving 5 years on the Guatemala Human Rights Commission's board of directors.
