I am currently finishing my PhD in Brazilian history at Vanderbilt University. Thanks to a NSEP/IIE Boren Fellowship, I spent January through November of 2011 living and doing doctoral research in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Prior to moving to Nashville, I attended West Virginia University (WVU) where I completed a M.A. in Spanish and a double B.A. in History & Spanish. While working toward my master’s degree, I taught Spanish for two years at WVU and tutored international students studying for the TOEFL. Although I love history, I have always enjoyed teaching and learning languages. When I’m not teaching or working on my dissertation, I’m a fiction writer, an avid reader, a world-traveler, a Latin dancer, and a mom.
