After completing a Master’s Degree in Spanish and additional graduate coursework for Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages, I sought out ways to use my language skills to serve the community.  For several years, I was an Adjunct Professor of Spanish at Georgetown College.  Now, I have two roles at Georgetown.

First, I am the Director of the Spanish Immersion Program, an innovative program that helps students launch their command of the language to new levels, while encouraging students to apply their linguistic skill and cultural knowledge to their personal and professional goals.  I am also fortunate to serve as an academic adviser for new international students, and assist all undergraduate international students with academic issues.  These roles allows me to fulfill multiple professional interests, particularly by providing learning opportunities for those who wish to study another language and culture; and helping to create a broader, more globally-minded atmosphere for everyone on the Georgetown College campus.
