I grew up in Bristol, Connecticut, home of Lake Compounce and ESPN. After attending college in Maine, I returned to Connecticut and now live in the town of Wethersfield. I love studying history and am fortunate to live in a very historical house—built in 1762! I also enjoy exploring the world. My recent adventures include trips to South Africa, China (twice!), Ireland, Italy, and Mexico, and in Summer 2016 headed to Scotland. Within the United States, my favorite destinations are the Maine shore in summer, Newport during the holidays, and Las Vegas and Key West any time of year! I am thrilled to share my passion for world languages and cultures with the DL&AMMS community, and am excited to learn from the diverse experiences of our incredible students and staff.
