My education was completed through the public system inæmy hometown and then at the Inter American University of Puerto Rico and the Fundaci-n Ortega y Gassett in Spain where I earned a degree in Business Administration Managerial Economics. I love travelling around the world and have visited many countries in Europe and Latin America. I came to Boston in 1997 after working several years for the Government at the Puerto Rico Planning Board. In Boston, I had several professional experiences in the Financial and Investment fields for companies such as Mellon and Bank of America. My teaching experience began in 1997 at Berlitz and in 2000 I was nominated Teacher of the Year in the New England District. From there, I started to teach Spanish at Simmons College as well as Spanish for Business and Social Services Professionals at the Harvard Business School. In recent years I have participated in different language programs and taught at the Massachusetts General Hospital, Genzyme Pharmaceutical and Arnold Worldwide, to name a few. I started teaching Spanish at Northeastern University in 2009.
