I have been a happy resident of Vermont for four years, three teaching Spanish at MSA. Prior to coming to MSA, I worked in the sustainable agriculture and food sectors on small organic farms around the Northeast. I received my B.A. in Spanish Language and Literature and Environmental Studies from Tufts University in 2012. I studied at the University of Chile, Santiago and traveled in that country, as well as in Peru and Argentina. I am Program Manager of a social justice and environmental education nonprofit organization in Western Mass, where I work to connect youth of diverse backgrounds to meaningful experiences in nature. I enjoy hiking, reading, practicing yoga and meditation, cooking, and playing music. I am active in the community as a board member of the Women’s Freedom Center in Brattleboro, VT.
