I’m coming to Ecuador from the amazing Pacific Northwest! I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon and completed my B.S. in Human Physiology at the University of Oregon in 2008. I love running, cooking, baking, spending time with my much loved friends & family, and doing anything in the outdoors. I’m very excited for the opportunity to be a part of the MPI Ecuador team! I have a great passion for health & wellness education and I can’t wait to begin living and working in Ecuador. I have much to learn from my new community and from my team as well, I am truly excited for the adventures that are ahead!
Arriving in Ecuador during the rainy season was a welcome change for this Southern California native. I have always loved exploring new places and learning about other cultures so I am very excited to be here in Ecuador. I graduated from Hamilton College in 2011 with a double major in Comparative Literature and Studio Art. I enjoy working with and learning from other people. I particularly enjoy learning other languages because I am fascinated by how we communicate. I look forward to teaching English and Children’s Art classes where I will get to explore my interest art and literature. I am passionate about the well being of others and I cannot wait to discover all that this amazing country has to offer!
