I've recently moved to the Atlanta area after living abroad in Chile for 8 years. I am originally from Alabama and graduated from Birmingham-Southern College with a BA in English Language and Literature. Immediately after undergrad, I relocated to New York City to pursue my law degree at Fordham University. After earning my Juris Doctor and passing the NY bar exam, I worked for five years as a litigator in New York. In 2009, I took the opportunity to fulfill a lifetime dream to live abroad and moved to South America. Upon arriving in Chile, I worked as an ESL teacher for children and adults as well as an editor of investment research and corporate trainer. I love language and am passionate about helping others learn to speak, write and read in a more effective way. Language is a tool, and I truly believe anyone can learn to use it better. I'm excited to be back in the US and eager to work with motivated students.
