How did you hear about the group?

I was talking with a coworker of mine who mentioned that this group existed, so I searched around online to find you! I think one of her friends is part of the group.

Have you travelled in any Spanish speaking countries? Are you from one?

I lived in Ecuador for about six months last year. Before that I spent a couple of weeks in Nicaragua, and recently I returned to Ecuador for another three weeks. Both countries were lovely and I hope to be there again someday soon! But I'm also excited to explore new places.

What is your background speaking Spanish?

I learned some in grade school and high school, and I took a course in college, but I really didn't feel comfortable with it until I lived in Ecuador. I'm sure I still mess up all the time, but it feels so good to speak it, and, let's face it, sometimes certain concepts just make more sense in Spanish... I am also excited because I am starting to have opportunities to use my Spanish in my work setting.


I just moved to Seattle a couple of months ago, but I am originally from Minnesota and spent the last 4 years principally based in Maine. I'm a recent college graduate and I'm excited to be here in this beautiful city and state.
