Born and raised in Bolivia. I am originally for Santa Cruz, Bolivia. I did my undergraduate in La Paz, Bolivia. I moved to the USA in 1997 and I did my graduate studies at Ohio University. 

I have two children, they both love and live for soccer, so I am involved in all aspects of the sport (my favorite sport). 

I enjoy reading and meeting new people. I also enjoy going out to different restaurants with my husband and children. 

I miss my family in Bolivia very much, and I try to go every one to two years there during the Summer to visit with them.

This is my first year working in Oliver Springs High School, and so far I love it. Everyone, from administrators -to co-workers- to students, have been very welcoming, and I already feel at home.
