B.A., M.A., University of Utah, Ph.D, University of Wisconsin – Madison. Juan M. Gonzalez, originally from Salt Lake City, Utah, worked for 18 years as an international public relations specialist/marketing rep for an advertising firm. Part of his responsibilities included making three-to-four-week trips throughout South America and Mexico to meet and greet radio and TV managers and owners. He has worked and lived in every major city in that area. An economic downturn in the mid-90s found him without work and consequently he went back to school to complete a B.A. and M.A. in Spanish at the University of Utah. He left Utah in 1998 to complete his Ph.D in Spanish at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, from which he graduated in 2005. Recently, he spent four years teaching Spanish at Adams State College in Alamosa, Colorado. Juan has been teaching at Northern State University in Aberdeen, South Dakota since spring 2009.
