“I am originally from Italy and I came to San Diego to attend college in 1999—and I never left! I love everything about San Diego and Southern California, including the sunny weather, the beach, and the friendly people, just to name a few. I love to travel (some of my favorite destinations are Dubai and Tokyo) and to learn different languages (I speak Italian, German, and French).

“When I am not working, I can be found at the beach, walking along the bay with my dog Feefy, doing yoga, working out at the gym, and trying new restaurants.

“I enjoy working with international students because I was an international student myself, and I am aware of the challenges and cultural shock that international students may encounter when they arrive in the United States. I hope that sharing my experience will help them feel welcome and comfortable in a new country.”
