I was born in Santiago, Chile, where my parents, brother and sister still live. I moved to Austin in 1996 with my own family. I have a daughter, Ivana, a 17 year old student in the Austin Independent School District and a son, Lucciano, who is 22 years old, attending college at UT
I have a degree in Business Administration from the University of Chile. I worked for ten years in the financial department of a private company in Chile before coming to Texas. While in Texas I have been busy volunteering as a Spanish teacher at my children's schools. I have experience as a high school Spanish tutor. I have been working at St. Ignatius, Martyr, Catholic School for eight years. During the eight years I have been with St. Ignatius, I have taught Spanish to students in Pre-K 3 through 4th grade and I have worked as a teacher aid. Currently, I am working as the school secretary, a position I began in January of 2010. I am very excited with my new job. I like it very much and especially appreciate the fact that I can still enjoy working with the kids.
