As an IIP Advisor and Program Coordinator, I help develop internship opportunities  and advise students on internships in Europe, Western & Northern Africa, Canada, the Middle East and Oceania. I’m a dual citizen (USA & UK)  and my family moved several times while I was growing up, so I’ve lived in the UK, Texas, and Ethiopia.  I attended Macalester College where I double-majored in Linguistics and French & Francophone Studies and studied abroad in Strasbourg, France during my sophomore year. After I graduated, I worked as an English teaching assistant in the Haute-Savoie region of France through the TAPIF program. I then moved to Madison where I worked for several years in the Office of Admissions and Recruitment before joining the IIP team. In my free time, you can find me doing embroidery, social dancing (salsa, swing, etc) or playing board games with friends and family.
