Local Coordinator, Rhode Island
Growing up in Rhode Island, I developed a love of the Spanish language and culture early on. And with the constant encouragement of my high school Spanish teacher, I continued my studies at the University of Connecticut where I played Division I field hockey, majored in History and minored in Spanish. After graduating in 2001, I had the opportunity to put my Spanish skills to the test with a medical missions trip to Honduras. That experience solidified in my mind that this language was not only useful, but life changing.
Fast forward to 2020 and I’ve been teaching Spanish at Lincoln High School for 12 years, coaching field hockey for the same, been married for 18 years and have four wonderful daughters.
Working with teenagers has always been a passion of mine: on the field and in the classroom. But, seeing them experience new cultures first hand by traveling and hosting brings another level of job satisfaction that can’t be achieved any other way. I’m so excited for another wonderful summer with Live N Learn New England!
