Originally from Catania, Italy, in the beautiful region of Sicily, she has an M.A. in Linguistics and a TESOL Certificate from Brigham Young University, where she also taught Italian for 5 years. She has taught at Salt Lake Community College and currently, she is an adjunct instructor at the University of Utah. She’s had various experiences as a translator, interpreter, and voice recorder. Some of her passions are good food, dance, environment, quotations/proverbs, and transformative conversations. She is a true Italian (especially her accent 🙂), proud of her homeland's flavors, culture, and language. She loves being part of the ICSL team, and always looks forward to the annual Italian Festa, a great opportunity for spreading the Italian language and culture in this beautiful community. One of her favorite quotations is... «One language sets you in a corridor for life. Two languages open every door along the way» (Frank Smith)."
