¡Bienvenidos a mi página web!

I am a first year graduate student in the Department of Spanish, Italian and Portuguese working toward a Ph.D. in Hispanic Linguistics. I come to State College from Chapel Hill, NC where I was translating for the North Carolina Institute for Public Health (affiliated with UNC Chapel Hill Gillings School of Public Health).

The Spanish language has played a major role in my life over the past decade. In May of 2004, I graduated from the University of Florida (Gainesville, FL) after having completed a Bachelor’s Degree in Spanish (2002) and a Master’s Degree in Hispanic Linguistics from the Department of Spanish and Portuguese Studies. The following August (2004), I moved to Brookings, SD where I had accepted an Instructorship in the Modern Languages Department at South Dakota State University (SDSU). I was primarily an Instructor in the Intermediate Spanish Program, but I also designed and taught classes in the Advanced Spanish Language Program (see Courses Taught in my CV).  While at SDSU I served as Faculty Advisor to Sigma Delta Pi Sociedad Nacional Honoraria Hispánica and Summer Study Abroad Coordinator leading trips to Granada, Spain (2005, 2007), Oaxaca, México (2006), Buenos Aires, Argentina (2008) and Quetzaltenango, Guatemala (2009, 2010).

I love teaching and the rigors of the academic world and so I look forward to my time here at Penn State! WE ARE... PENN STATE!
