I graduated from Fort Myers High in 2002 receiving an International Baccaulaureate Diploma. Later that year, I matriculated in the University of Florida. While enrolled, I also studied abroad in Guanajuato, Mexico and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
In 2006, I graduated from the University of Florida, receiving a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish and minors in Portuguese and Latin American Studies. In 2008, I participated in a Fulbright grant program, where I traveled to Ecuador and Peru with K-12 teachers to build a curriculum to be used in foreign language and social studies classrooms throughout the state of Florida. I spent nearly three years teaching Spanish at Cape Coral High School, and decided to pursue a legal education in 2010.
While in law school, I have served as a member of Florida State College of Law’s Jessup Moot Court Team and Journal of transnational law and policy, interned in the Second Judicial Circuit Court, and worked as a law clerk for the Department of Financial Services and Sniffen and Spellman, P.A.
