Hispanic and Italian Studies
Building & Room:
I did not grow up speaking Spanish, nor did I learn it as a young adult. Rather, when I went back to school in my thirties, I decided to study the language and ended up falling so much in love with it that I made it my career. I am proof that you can learn a language at any time in life!
I am also a part-time ESL instructor. This complements my work at UIC beautifully. Many of my students are from Spanish-speaking countries, and I gain invaluable insight into their culture(s) as we learn together. I have many passions that include cooking, gardening, rescuing animals, and always learning new things.
