“Dare to live the life you have dreamed for yourself.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Author 1803 – 1882

I am inspired by the music, food and history of Spanish-speaking countries and have enjoyed life-changing visits to Spain, the Dominican Republic, Perú, Ecaudor, Colombia and México

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.
