I am a native Spanish speaker. I was born in Peru, and I first came to the United States in 2001. After several extended visits, I relocated to Colorado in 2004. I live with my family in Boulder. My husband Tim and I have three children. We are so lucky that our youngest child will attend Bixby this year!

When I am not working, I love to go hiking with my family, go on road trips, and visit my extended family in Peru and Europe. 

I discovered a passion for teaching early on, and I funded my education in Peru by tutoring local children in both English and Spanish. I have been teaching for almost 20 years now. I still keep in touch with many of my earliest students. Several of them have continued their education in the United States and Europe. I am the founder of Escuela ELE, a small Spanish school located in the Gunbarrel area, since 2015. I am so proud to have seen many of my students grow into amazing young people capable of understanding and seeing the world with different perspectives and have a passion for learning about other cultures.

I strongly believe in the value of learning a language at an early age. I am very grateful to be part of the Bixby family and help your children discover their passions. I am so positive we will all enrich one another on this journey. ¡Que empiece la diversión!
