Position title: IIP Advisor and Program Coordinator
259 Bascom Hall
I joined the International Internship Program as a Student Services Coordinator in fall 2019. I hold a BA in Journalism from UW-Madison. Having spent my entire life in the Midwest, I was eager to live elsewhere and found work as an editor, reporter, and photographer for a newspaper in Southern California out of college. Seeking more adventure, I moved to Vietnam where I taught English and reported on food and drink, travel, and culture for an English language magazine. Wanting to continue in education, I earned a Master’s degree in Education from Edgewood College after returning to Madison and taught English and literature at DeForest Area High School for five years. In my free time I love to read, podcast, run, hike, write, camp, and try to keep up with my two young kids.
I cultivate and advise on internships in Asia and Eastern & Southern Africa.
