I was born in Vilafranca del Penedès, Catalonia. I did my undergraduate and graduate work at the University of Barcelona, Catalonia. I received my Masters of Arts in History in 1998. After college, I moved to England to learn the language and, a year later, to Illinois as a visiting teacher to teach in a Bilingual Education program in East Aurora. I served as a secondary teacher for ten years. I taught in bilingual, mainstream, and honors programs at both the high school and middle school levels. I was a bilingual team leader at the middle school level. I began work on my Ph.D. in history at Northern Illinois University in 2009 with the purpose of combining my interests in legal history, labor history, and immigration history. Right now, I am a Ph.D. candidate and the Assistant Director of History & Social Sciences Secondary Educator Licensure Programs.
