Jenica recently joined the Raggio Research Center as the Project Coordinator for the Community of Bilingual English Spanish Speakers (CBESS) grant.  CBESS is the first NIH-sponsored SEPA grant in the state of Nevada and she is excited to be involved in such an important project.  Jenica received both of her degrees, a Bachelor's in Spanish and a Master's in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages), from UNR and is thrilled to be working at her alma mater.  Prior to relocating back to Reno, Jenica worked as an English teacher for two years in South Korea and 4 years at UCLA Extension's American Language Center.
