I am an Italian-American living in California. I have lived between California and Italy all of my life. My parents migrated to this country just before I was born and settled here in California in the 1970's. I grew up speaking Italian as my first language which was spoken in my home, while learning English at the same time. I spent every summer of my childhood in our village in Abruzzo, and after high school I spent many years traveling extensively throughout Europe and Italy.
In the late 1990's I settled down in Rome, Italy where I lived and worked for a Tour Operator until 2004. I returned to California to pursue my degree in Anthropology-Archaeology but soon found myself living in Italy again as a study abroad student learning art history and museum studies. I continued to spend every moment I could in Italy and once I finished my degree I moved back to Europe, living in Greece, then Italy again, and eventually England where I met my husband.
We have now returned to California and are settling down into life here...for the time being. I will return to live in Italy again and will never stop visiting in the meantime...after all my entire family is there. Italian is a beautiful language and an amazing culture, and it is my passion to teach our language and traditions in the best way I can. I look forward to working with you and I confident I will be able to assist in any way.
