Nuria was born and raised in Barcelona. Being the youngest child of her family, she felt eager to learn from her older sibling and numerous cousins. They taught her many wonderful things such as how to pick blackberries, make a jasmine necklace, swim or ride a bicycle.
After graduating from high school she decided to attend the University of Barcelona, where she obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Public Administration, and worked at the offices of Diputació de Barcelona as an administrative and legal advisor for 9 years.
In 2007 her life changed when she got the opportunity to move to San Diego, California (USA), with her husband who is a scientist working in the field of Genomics. There, she had the opportunity to work as a Spanish language teacher for kids from ages 1 to 12 years old. Working with children revealed as her true passion, and she decided to get formal training in the education field.
She obtained an official European Master’s Degree in Montessori Education (0-6 years-old) by the University of Vic (UVic), along with the AMI certifications of Assistant to Infancy (0-3) and Casa dei Bambini (3-6) in a joint program between the UVic and The Montessori Institute of San Diego. After getting the degrees, she worked during 3 years as English Toddler Guide and Infant Community Supervisor at Kinderhouse Montessori School of San Diego, a multicultural AMI certified educational center. Most recently, she has collaborated as an Associate Teacher and AMI referee within the UVic’s Montessori Master’s degree program.
After a long stay in USA (8 years), life brought her back to her hometown. She looks forward to keep fostering children in their social, emotional and intellectual growth.
In her free time she enjoys crafting, hiking in family, and rediscovering the world with her 5-year-old son.
