My professional experience is providing legal services to the Latino community in the Washington, DC area - most recently, at Maryland Legal Aid, where I worked with clients in Spanish on a daily basis.
For my undergraduate degree, I studied at the University of Pittsburgh, earning a B. S. in Political Science, Latin American Studies, Spanish and Portuguese. I have studied throughout the region, specifically spending time in Nicaragua and Brazil.
Spanish language and culture is an integral part of my identity, and I am eager to share this wonderful language with others.
If you are interested in learning about Spanish music, art, history & politics - or if you would simply like to learn how to use Spanish in a professional capacity - I can tailor a curriculum to your specific needs and interests.
