2001 Major: Spanish and History

How has being a graduate from Duke's Romance Studies Department helped shape you personally and/or professionally?

"I have used my Spanish language skills throughout my career as a physician. As a physician, communicating with Spanish-speaking patients in their native language allows me to establish a rapport that is unmatched."

What advice would you give students in Duke's Romance Studies programs?

"Communication has and always will be key in our world. Mastery of a foreign language, specifically Spanish, will provide so many avenues for communication with others who speak Spanish as their primary language."
