About Me

I am a Spanish language professional that specializes in teaching, translation and bilingualism.

A native from Southern California, I graduated from San Diego State University (SDSU) with a Master’s Degree in Spanish and a BA in International Business specializing in Western Europe with a minor in German. I also hold a Professional Certificate in Translation and Interpretation (English/Spanish) from the University of California San Diego (UCSD).

I lived in Spain and married a Spaniard in 2010. I now live in Southern California with my husband, two daughters and our German Shepherd.

As a native English speaker myself, I know where you are coming from when trying to learn Spanish. I understand the challenges and pain points that English speakers face. I have been there!

With nearly 15 years of teaching experience, I have been able to devise unique teaching methods and approaches to help students learn practical Spanish in a simple and intuitive way, enabling them to have the tools necessary to navigate effectively the ‘real’ world of communication in Spanish.

Through Down to Earth Spanish, I want to help you take your Spanish to the next level. Are you ready?
