I am a Chicago native, and currently live in Durham, North Carolina. I received an MA in City and Regional Planning from UNC-Chapel Hill in 2017. Prior to that, I spent years living in Argentina, Colombia, and Brazil, studying and working as an administrative assistant, freelance linguist, and Fulbright English Teaching Assistant.

I currently teach ESL at a local community college, and am accepting private English, Spanish and Portuguese students. My approach to teaching and language is communicative, interactive, and organic. In addition to teaching, I enjoy the art of capturing the meaning and flow of language to provide written translations.

Thanks for visiting! I appreciate the opportunity to meet your language instruction or translation needs. Please contact me with any inquiries, or to schedule an initial phone consultation.
