I was born and raised in Southern Italy (Foggia, Puglia). My mom is from Ferrara (Northern Italy), I always visited my grandparents in the Ferrara area where I also attended University, and I earned my Master of Science in Education. My background is a mix of both Southern and Northern Italian cultures. I have worked as an Italian and English home tutor. During these past 3 years I worked as an Italian Adjunct Instructor with undergraduate college students at St. Joseph’s University and Temple University in Philadelphia. I started to work in the Continuing Education Programs at Flagler College and University of North Florida from November 2015. I love to teach my mother language and my culture!
