Lorena grew up speaking Spanish and Catalan, co-official languages in her native region in Spain. Her interest in languages quickly developed shortly after arriving in a small town in Minnesota to take her high school senior year as an international student. That experience gave her the opportunity to not only learn English but also to meet people from all over the world while being fully immersed in American life and culture.
Back in Spain, Lorena earned a master’s degree in Education. Since then, she has always worked in teaching, training, and e-learning. As a teacher first, and as a training specialist and coordinator later, she specialized in e-learning and knowledge management. She offers over ten years of experience creating meaningful online educational experiences, enhanced also by her bachelor’s degree in Psychology.
Lorena is currently living in New Jersey with her husband and their daughter. In her spare time, she enjoys working out, hiking and reading, and of course, she loves spending time with family and friends.
Lorena is excited to join Freestyle and to connect through language with students and colleagues alike! She shares the passion for teaching and believes that Freestyle’s methodology is unique and can take both language teaching and learning to the next level!
