I was born in Zacatecas, Mexico, along with my brother and sister. I grew up in Denver, Colorado and attended DPS schools from elementary school to high school. In high school, I became convinced that I wanted to be an English teacher; the way that language could express a variety of sentiments and perspectives amazed me.
I attended the University of Colorado at Denver where I received my English/Teaching degree. Last year, I had the amazing opportunity to teach English in Madrid, Spain to middle and high schoolers. I have a strong passion for exploring different countries and cultures and all they have to offer. On a day to day basis, I like to go on runs, dance, and spend time with my family
