About Katherine

Bio

For the past twenty years, I have worked as a cross-cultural consultant and creative arts instructor in a wide range of settings throughout Northern California and Southeast Asia.

In 2000, a year after traveling in Southeast Asia for the first time, I accepted a position at Yonok College in Northern Thailand. I focused on developing creative approaches to teaching EFL and facilitated all faculty trainings. My husband and I formed our company, Steakfish International, as an independent project during our lectureships at Yonok.

I recently returned to Asia and worked as Literature Department Head at Nakornpayap International School in Northern Thailand where I also co-directed the first TEDx event in the region.

As Education Director of Steakfish International, I partnered with schools, non-profit organizations and community-based organizations in training educators in the use of innovative, arts-based methods of teaching literacy, and in bringing meaningful cross-cultural coping tools to third culture teens and adults.

I currently work as High School Admissions Representative at Ex'pression College and volunteer at numerous TEDx events in the Bay Area including TEDxSF.
