Consulting + speaking


Before Covid-19 put most study abroad programs on pause, I was a university lecturer for several undergraduate programs in Florence, designing and running storytelling-centered courses in fashion media/journalism and travel writing. (I’ve since launched my own virtual classes). In “normal” times, I regularly guest-lecture in communication-focused classes around Florence and love the energy and fresh perspectives of students. I’ve also participated in numerous panels on you-name-the-topic. If you’re a teacher/school administrator, writers’ group director, or an organization leader who could use a lively ENFP type in your lineup of Zoom guest lecturers, let’s talk!


Is Florence on your post-pandemic, gotta-finally-get-there list? Want to talk things through ahead of time with someone on the ground? I offer tailored consulting sessions through the online platform Well Traveled, which aims to bring travelers the perspective of a friend-of-a-friend living in their destination city. It’s kickback-free, fun, and a fantastic alternative to stress-scrolling through forums on a site that rhymes with CripSurpriser – promise. Book a session here – you can request me or browse through other consultants in the lineup to find your perfect match.


As a fixer-for-hire, I love lending a hand (and a bilingual ear!) to international television and film crews who need assistance from someone who knows the lay of the land, the language, and *just* the person to call in a pinch. Contact me about your project and how I can make your time in Italy easier!
