Julia Cancelo


Julia Canelo was born in Spain and moved with her family to Venezuela at the age of 2. At the age of 17, Julia moved to Canada to study English. She then received her degree in Economics in Venezuela, and began her professional life in management roles at commercial and financial areas at multinational companies. She started her own company in Costa Rica, where she lived for four years.

After living in a big metropolitan area like Caracas, Julia finds the peace and quiet of Corning, NY a welcome change. She has lived here with her family (2 children and 2 grandchildren) for almost 4 years. She loves to spend time with her grandchildren and cook, always experimenting with new recipes and flavors.

Julia is excited to be teaching Spanish at 171, and views it as an opportunity to share the richness and diversity of her culture with others in hopes of enriching their lives.
