Darlene grew up in a multi-cultural environment in Singapore until she was 15 and then returned to her passport country Australia for a few years before going overseas to St Andrews University Scotland to study History. She returned to Australia and completed a Dip. d at Monash University. She then began her career of more than thirty years as a teacher and administrator in schools. She worked at all girls, all boys and co-ed schools in Australia, USA, Oman, Thailand, India and Turkey, all the while using her experience and understanding of being a TCK (Third Culture Kid) to help her students understand themselves, whether from one culture or mixed cultures and backgrounds. Her own interest and research into international education developed an academic side as she pursued a Masters in Education at Bath University which then morfed into an EdD, where she is currently focused on research into culture and educational leadership in an international context. These studies provide an academic underpinning to the experiential nature of the knowledge and understanding she brings to educational leadership. She has been an administrator in Oman, Thailand and India and most recently Director of Enka Schools for 6 years in Istanbul, Turkey. While working in international schools for the past 15 years, Darlene has been closely involved with the IB programmes as an examiner, workshop leader and consultant. In her leadership roles in schools, she has supported and trained teachers from a variety of cultures who are developing their skills working with international curriculum as well as students, parents and colleagues of many different nationalities. Darlene is currently working at ECIS supporting the development of their educational programmes and as a consultant. She manages the ITC programme for ECIS and is responsible for the academic oversight of the ITC Discussion Forum. She will facilitate some course content, in particular the inter-cultural training, and is there to assist and support participants with questions about the course content and to lead on-line discussion in areas of interest to the ITC.

Her most recent post was as Director of Enka Schools in Istanbul from 2006 - 2012.
Growing up in Singapore and then studying and teaching in many diffrent contries on five continents has given Darlene a wide variety of cultural experiences from which she developed a passion for international educational and intercultural understanding. This has been a focus for studies and research and will continue to affect her life into the future.

In school, Darlene progressed from Head of Department to Housemaster (Melbourne Grammar-Australia), to Dean of Students (Prem Tinsulanonda Int.School-Thailand) to Head of High School (EMWS- Mumbai) , and finally Director at Enka Schools Istanbul. All of these positions have allowed Darlene to work with her passion of empowering those around her to believe in themselves and reach for their best in their teaching and learning.
Experience in international schools provided the background for a developing interest in researching intercultural understanding and communication. Darlene's involvement with AIE started when her school was one of 5 schools hosting the conference in Istanbul and since then she has remained committeed to the ideals represented by AIE and seeks to support the group and increase her contribution. Darlene has joined the trustees in January 2011 and was made Executive Secretary in 2012.
