I was born in Spain and I have lived in the UK since 1981. I have worked in Marketing and travelled around Europe. In 1993, I completed a BA (Joint Honours) in Spanish with French Studies at the University of Wolverhampton and a PGCE in Higher Education before joining the University of Birmingham.
I have also taught Spanish at the Universities of Aston, Buckingham and Wolverhampton. At the University of Wolverhampton I have been involved in various European Union projects teaching Spanish to UK Business leaders and medical staff.
