About Me


Hi there!
I recently graduated from the University of Michigan, where I studied to teach Spanish and English, but I ultimately want to teach ESL, which is what made me decide to spend some time teaching English here in Costa Rica. I'm loving it here so far and I really look forward to the year ahead!

I love learning new languages and experiencing new cultures. I still hope to add another language or two to the list I know!

As cheesy as it sounds, one of my favorite things to do is to meet new people. I'm always up for a good conversation over a drink or two (Especially Beer and Mojitos), and really any form of a good time! I always love a crazy night out, or to just kick back and chill. I am really excited to get to know Heredia, and to meet new people during my time here. I also have a really nice house walking distance from downtown, with a couch that is sometimes free for guests.

Music, Movies, and Books

It's hard to list my favorites but I'll try...

Music: I love live music. Almost any kind. My favorite kind of music really depends on my mood, and whatever moves me, and I'm always looking for new recommendations. I love folk, funk, bluegrass, jazz, flamenco, reggae,rock, indie, oldies (music nostalgia is always great- especially with the 90s Boy Bands haha), etc.

Movies: Big Fish, Edward Scissorhands (I LOVE Tim Burton), The Squid and the Whale, The King's Speech, Annie Hall, and any good comedy

Books: some of my favorite writers are David Sedaris, Vonnegut, Borges, Cortazar, Henry James, F Scott Fitzgerald...
