“Dare to live the life you have dreamed for yourself.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Author 1803 – 1882
After earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Art and working for many years in Graphic Design and Information Technology, I began studying Spansh in 2010 with a goal of traveling to several Latin countries.
I switched careers in 2012, earning a certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language from the International Teacher Training Organization in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. I began teaching in Tlaquepaque, moving on to Puerto Vallarta to work as a teacher of Informática.
In 2014, I volunteered in an unpaid position teaching English in Barranquilla, Atlántico with WorldTeach Colombia. After a successful year with WorldTeach, I relocated to Cartagena de Indias, Bolivar, where I currently teach secondary-level English literature and creative writing.
