I studied Portuguese in the CLC at the University of Alabama from 2000-2007, as a graduate student, and fell in love with the language and Brazilian culture. It inspired me to make many trips to Brazil so I could learn more about what I was introduced in the classroom. Most of my time in Brazil has been spent in the city of Sao Paulo and its surrounding areas but I have also had the opportunity to visit the northeast. As a language trainer in the CLC, it is my goal to inspire all those who study Portuguese with us to increase their knowledge and to generate enthusiasm for Portuguese-speaking cultures everywhere.
