Prior to transitioning to higher education, Iris was a manager and trainer in the banking industry. She was fascinated by the empowerment individuals felt after training. It was during that time she found her passion for adult education. Iris devoted herself to the study of learning theories and practices of adult learners.

We are all lifelong learners in both our personal and professional development.
