I grew up in Atlanta, and went to the University of Georgia where I received Bachelors degrees in both Microbiology and Spanish. At UGA, I was fortunate enough to study abroad in Argentina, where I furthered my love of Spanish. I was also in the Redcoat Marching Band Flagline, and was a color guard instructor for 6 years. Before teaching, I actually studied dentistry. After a year of working on teeth, I decided to move in a different direction and become a teacher. I obtained my Masters of Arts in Teaching from the University of the Cumberlands in 2014. I am married to my husband, Santos, and we just had our first child, Sophia, at the beginning of August! We also have a chihuahua/schnauzer mix named Georgia. In my spare time, I love doing crafts, going to movies, and salsa dancing with my husband. I also try to travel as much as possible (I have been to four continents and six Spanish-speaking countries). I love being part of the Belmont Academy family!
