Academic Specialties and Other Interests
I’m a professor of the Spanish language and Hispanic and Latinx literatures and cultures in the department of modern languages and literatures. I work with students interested in developing and putting their Spanish language and intercultural skills into practice in various settings. I contribute courses to the Latin American and Caribbean Studies minor and the Health and Society major. I also enjoy mentoring students with interests in three Career Channels: Health and Healing, Justice and Rights, and Worldbuilding.
In addition to being the advisor for the Spanish House and Voces Club, I work with students who wish to get involved with Beloit’s Latinx community, especially by volunteering at non-for-profit organizations. It’s especially rewarding for me to help students envision their futures and realize their goals both in and outside of the classroom.
I’m originally from Connecticut but have called the Midwest home for some time now. When I’m not teaching and preparing classes, I enjoy listening to music, cooking, baking, gardening, painting, and hiking. I look forward to meeting you and getting to know what you’re excited about and want out of your Beloit experience.
