Lyse holds a BA in Latin American Studies and Spanish, and an MA in Foreign Affairs. Her early passion for linguistics and language acquisition had her studying a dozen languages. She is fluent in French, English, Spanish and Italian, and is comfortable conversing in Portuguese and in simple Arabic, German and Ukrainian. She has taught English as a Second Language (ESL) since her twenties, and while she lived in Guadalajara, Mexico, taught university-level French and Italian. Lyse lived and studied in Florence, Italy, during which time she became familiar with many regions of that beautiful country.
In addition to her travel experience and linguistic abilities, Lyse is a certified Energy Healer, Level One Reiki and Reflexology practitioner.
It is an understatement to say that she is passionate about everything that she does, and her excitement about travel and learning is contagious.
