Lena is from Hermosa Beach, California and moved to Austin in 2012 to attend The University of Texas. She is passionate about language learning; she studied French in high school, Italian in college, and is now learning Spanish! She is a recipient of the Diploma D’Honor for Exceptional Merit from the French & Italian Department at The University of Texas, where she graduated with a degree in Finance and a minor in Italian.
Apart from studying at UT, she has studied around the world – before college, she took a gap year in Gallarate, Italy. She also studied abroad during college on Semester at Sea, a program on which she sailed from Mexico to England, stopping at many ports in Asia and Africa along the way!
As Assistant Director of Marketing and Operations, Lena brings her organization expertise, love of design and enthusiasm for bilingualism all together to help Freestyle grow (and run smoothly in the process, of course!) She is always there to lend a helping hand to students and to Freestyle’s exceptional team of teachers. Lena is thrilled to be a part of Freestyle’s dynamic community!
