Hi there! Welcome to my site :)
What started as a space to jot down my endless love affair with Spain, has turned into a place for me to share some stories and practice some of the skills I’m learning in business, marketing, tech, and writing. I’m a former middle school teacher eager to learn more languages, curious about organizational psychology & personal development, and fascinated by astrophysics!
I love a good ghost story, red wine, and crème brûlée.
Most of my free days are spent reading & writing, hiking, watching fantasy/sci-fi shows, and catching up with friends over a café con leche. I make it a point to travel to Spain every chance I get, usually once a year. I’m currently obsessed with astrology, mythology, and the metaphysical. More than anything, I just want to spend my time on earth living a joyful life and connecting with others.
Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. - Steve Jobs
Society tells us the path is straightforward, but we all know that's a lie. In these three decades, I’ve lived many lives. Much like Robert Frost’s, The Road Not Taken, I tend to take the road “less traveled by”. After high school, at the ripe old age of 17, I joined the non-profit performing group called The Young Americans. For three years, it was like living out Willie Nelson’s On the Road Again, performing and teaching music all around the US to kids. I loved every minute of it.
Curiosity often leads you to the experiences that will shape you into the person you are meant to be.
The twists & turns:
I was an Entertainment Costuming Lead and Trainer on Electrical Parade at the Disneyland.
I’m a proud community college transfer and first generation college graduate from UCLA! #GoBruins.
Watched Spain win their first World Cup title while studying abroad for the first time (changed my life!)
After graduation, I moved to the wine region of La Rioja, Spain to teach English.
Masters in Teaching from USC #FightOn
Fulbright scholar (ETA grant) in Madrid, which was the BEST year of my life thus far.
Thanks for taking the journey with me. I hope you enjoy the ride :)
