I was born and raised in Orange County, Southern California. My parents are from Guatemala and Mexico, Central America. I speak Spanish and English and trying to Improve my Italian. I graduated from the University of California, Riverside, with a degree in Sociology and Italian Language studies. I've always had a passion to increase my understanding and knowledge of the world, social groups, behaviors and cultural aspects and how they effect our personal and professional lives.
In 2011 I decided to pursue my passion for traveling, which I hadn't done much of, and became TESOL certified. My certification landed me with a job in Istanbul, Turkey where I taught for 7 months and had the opportunity to travel to nearby countries. I came back to the U.S. and taught for another year in San Diego and San Francisco. In 2013 I worked for Berlitz Co. managing all the Instructors in the Northwest Market Area (3 centers) where I started my management career in the field that I loved most, languages. For 2014 I am currently managing a small housing company(Turkish owned) that specializes in accommodating International students and working professionals in the Bay Area. Most of our customers are in the U.S. to improve their English and/or attempting to attend an American University. It's been a great and successful journey and I owe it all to my teaching experience.
