Born in Italy, I studied foreign languages and literatures at the University of Sassari, in Sardinia.

In 1999 I took my first Master of Arts in Bilingual Translation at the University of Westminster in London.

After teaching French and English as foreign languages in Italy from primary to middle school, in 2006 I moved to Houston, where I taught as a Bilingual Teacher for Pasadena ISD; my American teaching experience continued at Bellaire High School (Houston Independent School District), where I began teaching French first and now Italian at AP and IB level.

In 2010 I obtained my second Master in Theories and Methodologies for Teaching Italian to Foreigners from the University of Tor Vergata, in Rome.

From 2009 to 2017 I worked as an adjunct at the University of St.Thomas in Houston.

From 2008 to 2014 I cooperated with the Italian Cultural and Community Center in Houston, teaching Italian classes and also opening and being Responsible for the PLIDA Certification Center, accredited from the Società Dante Alighieri in Rome.

Teaching at AP and IB level pushed me to seek a better understanding of how these exams worked, to be able to help my students succeed; since 2014 I am an AP Reader for the College Board and also an IB Examiner for the International Baccalaureate Organization.
