I started my professional career as a surveyor but I decided to teach Spanish at the college level. For that reason, I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Primary Education from the International University of La Rioja, Spain. I have also completed an advanced course of “Spanish as a Second Language: Teaching and learning” through the UNED Foundation. I have been teaching Spanish for nine years at the Spanish Basic Language Program (SBLP) at the Pennsylvania State University. I usually teach hybrid courses in this program.

Besides teaching, I can say that cooking is my passion. Since I am a gastronomy enthusiast, I took a culinary course at the Basque Culinary Center in Spain, recognized as one of the leading universities in Gastronomic Sciences. I also love maps, cartography, and traveling.
