Let me tell you a bit about myself...

Sylvia has been kind enough to introduce me. Now we think it proper for me to tell you something about who I am.

I come from Maine, in New England, a region of the United States that borders Canada. That is where I now live. I went to high school in Virginia, and began college in New York state. I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of Southern Maine, and my law degree at the University of Maine School of Law.

Until coming to Spain as a language and culture assistant this year, I worked for different law firms, mostly in Mexico, translating legal documents like contracts from Spanish into English. (Never from English into Spanish—my Spanish is not that good!)

Off and on, I have also written articles for different newspapers and magazines, both in the United States and in Mexico.

In addition to New York state and Virginia, I have lived in Beeville and El Paso, Texas; Washington, D.C.; Mexico City, Mexico; Mérida, Yucatán; Cozumel, Quintana Roo (Mexico); Chihuahua, Chih. (Mexico), and Albuquerque, New Mexico. I love to travel and have visited several countries now. Mostly I go to warm places, or places that are warm at the time I am there. I did once go to South Georgia Island, which is part of Antarctica—but it was not very cold when I visited, because it was the end of summer in the southern hemisphere.

I enjoy the sports of hiking and horseback riding, sailing and kayaking. I like to cook and do photography.  I read a lot, more fiction than non-fiction.

I am very happy to be in San Juan del Puerto. I feel very lucky to be working with such a diverse and talented faculty and students who have so much potential. I hope to be useful to the bilingual program, and I know I will learn a great deal from the people I am working with! My thanks to everyone for your welcome and kindness.
