Educational Background

  • Bachelor of Arts, Universidad Mayor de San Simón, Bolivia, 2003
  • Master of Arts, Indiana University, 2009


Currently Teaching
HISP 102 -  Elementary Spanish II

In addition to teaching HISP 102, I am Faculty-in-Residence at La Casa Hispánica (Harvey House), which is one of the Program Houses on campus with 28 residents and two Language Teaching Assistants.

Research Interest
My research interests are Applied Linguistics and Latin American Mythology. I am committed to an interdisciplinary approach to academic scholarship and teaching. I believe teaching languages should not only be an “inside classroom experience” because language and culture are an intricate part of a community.
