I am from Pennsylvania and went to college at Ohio Northern University where I met my future husband and graduated with a B.S. in ED. Since he is from Venezuela, he encouraged me to take some Spanish courses. I fell in love with the language and culture and finished with a major in Spanish.
After graduating, we moved to Venezuela to be near his family. This certainly helped me to be immersed in the language and culture. While living there we raised our five children and I taught EFL (English as a Foreign Language) at the binational center for over twenty years.
I love traveling and in addition to living and traveling in Venezuela, I have been to Mexico, Puerto Rico, Spain, Germany, Paris and Italy.
