I am originally from the beautiful state of Colorado, and I love getting outdoors to hike, backpack and photograph nature.  My introduction to languages and cultures came from my grandmother, whose first language was Spanish and my dad, whose experiences living abroad made me want to explore different cultures and customs.  As I teach, travel, and live throughout the world, I continue to meet wonderful people and build amazing memories. 


I have a Masters degree in TESL/TEFL and have taught ESL in many different contexts, including intensive English at Colorado State University and Colorado School of Mines.  Recently, I taught in China as an English Language Fellow for Georgetown University and the Department of State. 


I love being introduced to different foods, different cultures and different customs.  I can’t wait to build some more memories and share more experiences.  I am happy to join the wonderful staff at the ELC at the University of Denver, and I hope to see you here.
