About Me

I have over seven years of full time experience teaching EFL in Chile, China, Indonesia, and now Morocco. I have studied Spanish and Mandarin Chinese for many years, and I've recently begun to study Moroccan Arabic. I believe learning another language opens personal and professional doors in a way nothing else can! The best way to internalize a foreign language is to use it as much as possible, especially in conversation with a native speaker. I love languages and enjoy helping others to appreciate their beauty and utility.

I hold a master's degree in Intercultural Relations with a concentration in International Education Exchange, and a bachelor's degree in Spanish and Anthropology. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, reading, writing, yoga, and SCUBA diving. I am originally from Florida, USA.
