Autobiographical sketch:

 

I was born in la Paz, BCS (Mexico) but I lived in many cities throughout my life before my family and I settled in Halifax.

 

I studied a B.A. in English Literature at the National University of Mexico (UNAM). While pursuing my M.A. in Linguistics at the University of Florida, I had the opportunity to work as an editorial assistant on the fifth edition of The University of Chicago Spanish Dictionary. After receiving my M.A. degree, I continued my studies at the same university working toward a Ph.D.  in Hispanic Linguistics. I taught a wide variety of Spanish courses for several years at the UF and now I have had the opportunity to teach Spanish at the Mount. I have also been part-time faculty for the Department of Modern Languages and Classics at Saint Mary’s University.

 

I love reading, traveling and learning about other cultures and languages. I also enjoy teaching and love being part of the Mount.
