Experience. Excellence. Cultural Competence

I'm a Spanish language coach with 25 years of experience teaching individual and group Spanish classes. I hold a BA from Yale University and an MFA from Sewanee: The University of the South. In the 90s, I was the Administrator and Language School Coordinator of the non-profit Latin American Workshop in New York City.

I've designed and taught programs for Einstein College of Medicine, Catholic Medical Centers, New York Medical College, Jacobi Hospital, and IBM, among others. I designed the pilot online synchronous Spanish program at The New School in New York City and I designed and taught the nation's only certified Spanish for Lactation Consultants course for the U.S. Lactation Consultants Association and Cygnus Lactation in Chicago.

My literary translations have been published in the US and Canada. I have also contributed to numerous editorial projects relating to the Spanish language and Hispanic culture. Those clients include:

  • Learning Express

  • Berlitz International

  • Hal Leonard Publishing

  • Holt, Rinehart & Winston

  • Katakana Editores

There are so many reasons for engaging with Hispanic language and culture.

What's yours?
