I am an Assistant Professor of Spanish. I arrived at Spring Hill College in the fall of 2013, and I teach both language and literature.
After living in Chile for two years, I began my undergraduate studies and was surprised at how much I loved learning about Spanish and Latin American literature. After graduating, I went on to receive a Master’s degree in Spanish from the University of Nevada, Reno and a Ph.D. from Vanderbilt University in 2013. My research primarily focuses on early modern Spanish literature, but I am also interested in literature from England, the United States, Chile, and Brazil.
In addition to living in Chile, I have traveled to other Spanish-speaking countries, which includes assisting in directing a study abroad for undergraduates in Spain. I am actively engaged in the field of digital humanities and the use of technology to enhance learning and research. I love spending time with my family, cooking, and watching and playing sports. I love both football and fútbol, especially my hometown team Real Salt Lake.
