The tall and short of it:
I’m a 20-something Northeastern American with a taste for tortilla and a severe dose of wanderlust. After completing my M.Ed. in International Education in 2010, I returned to southern Spain where I studied abroad, and taught English for the Spanish Ministry of Education. Endless joy, living in Europe, making my way around with eyes wide and wallet slowly emptying.
I’m bilingual and have turned the corner to brunette, no longer blonde. I’m crazy about food and books, volleyball and photography.
In real life, I’m the Study Abroad Coordinator at Eastern Illinois University in Charleston, Illinois, USA. The Midwest is a new gig for me, and while I have mixed feelings about the tiny town, I love working with students and helping them grow and learn through travel.
