Kavanagh College's International Department team have many years of experience in New Zealand and overseas education. We have travelled widely and have worked with people from a large variety of cultures, giving us the expertise to support our international students here in Dunedin and also their parents and agents in their home countries.
I studied Business Management in Colombia, where I’m from. I lived in England for nearly 10 years and I have been living in New Zealand for the past 10 years. I consider myself a citizen of the world as my heart belongs to many places. I’m fluent in English, Spanish and I have a good understanding of Portuguese. I’m currently studying Te Reo Māori. I have two kiwi boys and one of them studies at Kavanagh College. I find it fascinating to learn about different cultures from all over the world and I'm lucky enough to have a job where I can do so.

I have been the lead ESOL teacher at Kavanagh College since 2011 and love teaching students from all over the world. Prior to working at Kavanagh, I lived in Düsseldorf, Germany, where I spent four years teaching ESOL to adults in companies and in programs for the German government. I enjoy travelling to other countries and experiencing other cultures, although I do less of that now that I have two young daughters - now my students bring their many languages and cultures to my classroom instead.
In 2020, I also look forward to building new relationships with our families and agents as I will be managing International student enrolments.

NZ Immigration isn't issuing student visas at the moment, but that doesn't mean you can't talk to us about your long term plans to study at Kavanagh.

Using the new language to complete a task, in this case the origami, is the ultimate test in both speaking and listening.
