Analía Gómez Vidal

Analía moved from Argentina to the DC area to obtain her Ph.D. She signed up for a WIT class in the pursuit of a new hobby a few years ago. Now she has a doctorate, a family of friends and loved ones, and never-ending laughter.

Analía signed up for an Improv for Scientists workshop in January 2016. Since then, she has completed WIT’s curriculum, in addition to sketch classes, one-time workshops and a terrifying-yet-memorable musical improv class. She has been part of WIT’s Special Projects Vagina! An Improvised Monologue Show, The Feminine Experience, In Lieu of Flowers, and the Harold team Oh That Baby. She regularly performs with indie team Sábado Picante and Poetic Resistance. She has also combined her love for improv, languages and teaching by leading WIT’s Improv for All workshops for English as Second Language (ESL) participants.

When she’s not doing improv, Analía works as a researcher for an international organization in the area, pursues other research projects, and offers mentoring and career advice while training to become a professional coach. All of that with an improv twist, of course.

Annie moved from Argentina to the DMV area for #gradlife and signed up for a WIT class in the pursuit of a new hobby. Now Uber suggests Source and CentroNia as her destinations more often than her own apartment.

When she is not talking about or doing improv, you can probably find Analía frantically writing, in her never-ending quest to complete her doctoral degree. She has found in improv a refuge from the stress of everyday life, a group of beloved friends who always have her back, and a great excuse to be creative and loud.
